Florida International University professor of contemporary art and theory Alpesh Kantilal Patel will have a lively discussion with Pérez Art Museum Miami’s (PAMM) Associate Curator María Elena Ortiz about his best-selling book Productive Failure: writing queer transnational art histories. Topics explored will include queer sexuality, race and “whiteness”–the often invisible ground  upon which racialized art’s histories are configured–as well as artworks/visual culture exploring everything from 9/11 to  the death of Trayvon Martin.
