4:00 pm - 5:30 pm - Johnson Auditorium

Maria Elena Gaitan is an interdisciplinary artist who examines history, race, gender, and a variety of social issues through music and performance art. Gaitán has performed throughout the U.S., and internationally and has been the recipient of a variety of awards, including the Gateways Bi-national Ford/Rockefeller Residency Award from the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center in San Antonio and CSUN's 2012 "The Phenomenal Woman Award." She has been a Lead Artist for the Ford Foundationâs Animating Democracy Initiative in San Antonio, Texas. Gaitánâs on-going project AZTLÃN/AFRICA: Songs of Affinity, funded by the Ford Foundation's Africa Exchange Project, brings together musicians, visual artists and scholars of different races and cultures to celebrate the African Diaspora in the Americas. With a significant record of activism, such as being the first Latina appointed to the Los Angeles County Board of Education, Gaitán occupies a unique place in Chicano artistic production and the history of politics in Los Angeles.

This event is sponsored by the Chicana/o Studies Department, the College of Humanities Academic Programming Fund and the Gender and Womenâs Studies Department.
