Artist María Magdalena Campos-Pons is scheduled to be present for a virtual conversation and interactive Q&A introduced by Nan Brewer, the Eskenazi Museum of Art’s Lucienne M. Glaubinger Curator of Works on Paper, and moderated by Anke Birkenmaier, IU Professor of Spanish and Portuguese.

We’re working with producer Andrea Chung to bring you the films When We Gather and When We Gather: Together. A limited number of complimentary passes will be available to watch the films on a first-come-first-served basis.

To participate in this virtual event:

• Be sure you have downloaded Zoom software to the device you want to use to watch this event.
• Register for the December 7 Zoom webinar to receive a link through which you will join the event at the date and time noted.
• To watch the film, you must tune in to the live Zoom event. At the end of the film introduction, a slide will appear with instructions on how to watch the film, which will include a web address as well as a password. The slide will also display a countdown clock indicating when the post-film Q&A will begin.
• Please note: The film will not screen via Zoom. You will need to open a web browser, type in the web address, and press enter. The web address must be entered into your web address bar—it will not work if you type into a search engine bar. Once on the film’s landing page, you will enter the password where it says “Enter password.”
• We recommend keeping the Zoom webinar window open while watching the film so you can view the countdown clock to the start of the post-film Q&A.

When We Gather is a six-minute art film that celebrates the women who have played an elemental role in the progress of the United States and offers a call to create a path forward for the leaders of the future. Conceived by renowned Cuban American artist María Magdalena Campos-Pons—in collaboration with LaTasha N. Nevada Diggs and Okwui Okpokwasili—the artists choreographed circular movements and gestures from diverse traditions evoking storms, spirals, and ancestral energy, accompanied by a soundscape incorporating lyrics and a poem written by Diggs.
