Artist and curator June Canedo — whose photography of Roma star Yalitza Aparicio appeared in Vogue’s recent November issue — leads a conversation about authentic collaboration in art-making: artists, curators and subjects engaging as equal partners, with collective input on direction, process and intention.

She talks with Diamond Stingily, artist, poet and one of the founders of Sparkle Nation Book Club, a bi-monthly guerilla dinner and book discussion group; Lizania Cruz, participatory artist and designer; Sonia Guiñansaca, poet and managing director at Culture Strike; and Den Quinsay, managing director of Bronx Documentary Center.

The discussion will offer perspectives on participatory art and other collaborative frameworks.
