  • In conjunction with di Rosa's current exhibition, Be Not Still: Living in Uncertain Times, internationally renowned artist Rigo 23 speaks with writer and public scholar Christian L. Frock about his years of making politically driven public art, including his site-specific installation for Be Not Still addressing American exceptionalism. Reception to follow. About the Speakers: Rigo 23 (born Ricardo Gouveia, 1966) is a Portuguese muralist, painter, and political artist who currently resides in Los Angeles. His work often takes the form of public interactions where viewers are encouraged to examine their relationships to their communities. His large-scale, immersive installation, Madre Tierra (Mother Earth) (2018), created for Be Not Still, employs an imposing three-dimensional rendering of a reversed American flag to explore the topic of American exceptionalism. Christian L. Frock is an independent writer, curator, and educator. Her work focuses on art, politics, and public life—and endeavors to alter the landscape for civic engagement by amplifying the work of artists and activists as powerful catalysts in collective change. Her work takes the form of public scholarship, cultural criticism, art exhibitions, teaching, public speaking, and consulting. Join the event on Facebook
