Join the Latin American and Latino Studies (LALS) Program at UIC for a book presentation on LUZ: Seeing the Space Between Us, in a conversation with the author Diana Solis, visual artist, educator, photographer, and alumni of the College of Architecture, Graphics and the Arts, with Deanna Ledezma, Ph.D. Art History UIC.

LUZ: Seeing the Space Between Us is a 3Arts-funded, bilingual book project that celebrates Solís's return to making photographs after her two-decade detour to pursue other artistic practices. Featuring portraits made in Solís's longtime neighborhood of Pilsen during the Covid-19 pandemic, LUZ: Seeing the Space Between Us reflects upon the transformations that Pilsen has undergone. The artist's book also features photographs made by Solís during her years as a documentary photographer and activist and newly produced risographs.
Special thanks to our co-sponsors: UIC Gender and Women's Studies and the Rafael Cintron Ortiz Latino Cultural Center.

This event will be in person - lunch will be provided.
