Migel Delgado’s talk, “Liminal Geografies: Reshaped Spaces of Our Collective Past,” will take place at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 19, in the Berquist Lounge in the Boise State Student Union Building. The event is free and open to the public.
Casita Nepantla, the space devoted to showcasing Latino art and culture and encouraging scholarly work on Latino issues, is featuring Delgado’s work in an exhibition in its pop-up gallery. Delgado enlists a variety of mediums in his work to imagine representations of migration and the configuration and notion of homelands. The exhibition will be on view from April 16-June 10. Casita Nepantla, on the second floor of the SUB in the Student Diversity Center, is open from 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.
Born in Burley, Idaho, Delgado graduated from Boise State in 2007 with a BFA in visual arts. He earned an MFA in visual culture in 2011. While at Boise State, Delgado was a McNair scholar.
His work has been shown in many venues, including galleries and on a traffic box at 15th and Grove Streets through the city’s public art program.
