On Thursday, June 24th at 6pm EST join us for Show & Tell: Balancing Acts by Lorena Molina, hosted by Vox members Maddie Hewitt and Lane Speidel for the June installment of Vox’s monthly digital screening series.

We will be showing several shorts by Lorena Molina, featuring some of her works currently on view in Black Box, along with some older pieces. Molina’s work explores her experiences as a brown woman in art and academic institutions. Join us for a Q&A with the artist following the screening!

The films will be available to view on the Vox Website, along with the filmmaker Q+A, for one month following the initial screening.

Show & Tell is presented by Vox Populi’s Black Box Committee as part of our ongoing 4th Wall film/video program dedicated to showcasing new and experimental film/video works by independent, emerging, and early-career artists.

About the Artist

Lorena Molina is a Salvadoran multidisciplinary artist and educator. She is an Assistant Professor of Art at the University of Cincinnati. Through the use of photography, video, performance and installation, she explores identity, intimacy, pain, and how we witness the suffering of others.

At the core of her work is an exploration of spatial inequalities and the challenges that oppressed groups face in constructing place and establishing a sense of belonging. Her work is driven by the displacement experienced after a 12-year-old civil war in El Salvador forced her family to migrate to the United States. Her current work looks at identity in the margins. She views the margins both as a place where extreme violence and pain happens, but also as a place for resisting, dreaming, healing, and thriving.

She received her Master of Fine Art degree from the University of Minnesota in 2015 and her Bachelor of Fine Art from California State University, Fullerton, in  2012. Molina has been a  recipient of the Diversity of Views and Experiences Fellowship, The Christopher Cardozo Fellowship, Truth and Reconciliation Grant, and The Kala Art Institute fellowship. She has exhibited and performed her work both nationally and internationally.
