As part of Joan Mitchell Foundation's ongoing collaboration with Voices of Contemporary Art (VoCA), please join us on Saturday, December 9, when artist Marcos Dimas sits down with fellow artist and VoCA Program Committee member Jonathan Allen to discuss his life, work, and artistic legacy.

Dimas combines pre-Columbian Taíno symbols with contemporary modes of abstraction and figuration. Combining his art practice with his advocacy work, Marcos co-founded Taller Boricua, The Puerto Rican Workshop, Inc., in 1970. Marcos is a recipient of the Joan Mitchell Foundation's Creating a Living Legacy (CALL) award. His work has been exhibited at Museo del Barrio, the Museum of Contemporary Hispanic Arts, Exit Art, and the Bronx Museum, among other venues.


"Since working with the CALL program, I am able to see my productivity in perspective. Now I can separate the different phases and styles of my work into decades and revisit themes and subjects with clarity whenever I wish to do so."
