The Robert Giard Foundation presents: Roberto Tondopó in conversation with Efrem Zelony-Mindell and Leonard Suryajaya.
Date and time: Wednesday, June 2nd, 2021, 5:30–6:30pm
Join Roberto Tondopó, recipient of the 2018–2019 Robert Giard Grant for Emerging LGBTQ+ photographers, for a talk on ‘TRÁNSITO: Holy Glorious San Sebastian [HGSS]’, a chapter in his ongoing project on the Chuntá. The chuntás are cross-dressed men who dance in the Fiesta Grande de Enero celebrations held every year in the town of Chiapa de Corzo, close to where Tondopó grew up in southern Mexico. Moving between observation and participation, the artist takes us on a journey through life, death, and the living body of Saint Sebastian.
Following his talk, Roberto will be joined in conversation with Efrem Zelony-Mindell and Leonard Suryajaya.
This online event is free with registration. Donations will support the annual Robert Giard Grant for emerging LGBTQ+ photographers.
