Please join us for the annual Gillett G. Griffin Memorial Lecture, featuring artist, painter, graphic designer, set designer, illustrator, and writer, Antonio Martorell.

Martorell will discuss artworks in response to the ills of colonial history. He has spent 60 years exploring communication and conversation starters by ways of visual, literary, performance and news media and will provide a glimpse at collective workshops enjoying the pleasure of creation and teamwork and the rehearsal of democratic actions.

Martorell was a 2021 National Medal of Arts recipient and presented with the award earlier in 2023 by President Joseph R. Biden.

Sponsored by Princeton University Library, the Program for Latin American Studies, and the Department of Spanish and Portuguese.

A reception will follow the talk in Lower Hyphen. Registration is required.
