Eddie Rodolfo Aparicio’s practice addresses colonial and ecological concerns through material and formal means. Primarily using raw materials that have a strong connection to pre-Hispanic cultures in Central America, such as amber and rubber, Aparicio engages with the complex histories and contemporary concerns of the Latinx community in his native Los Angeles, the wider United States, and abroad.

Joined by Suzanne Hudson, Associate Professor of Art History and Fine Arts at USC, the artist will discuss his recent work, including his rubber works in the Caucho series, and its intersection with issues of environmental justice embodied practice, and place-making.
