I have been meaning to post this happy news about the book below. It features my work along with that of other Latin American women artists and writers and will be published by Boydell & Brewer in August of 2023.
Thanks to Jane Lavery and Sarah Bowskill for persevering in its publication and thanks to the National Museum of Mexican Art and Dolores Mercado, Associate Curator for giving me the opportunity for a solo exhibit in 2015. It was the work in this exhibit that lead to Dr. Sarah Bowskill writing an academic article titled Bearing Witness to Child Abuse and Trauma in Pilar Acevedo's Multimedia Fragmentos Exhibition and eventually, The Multimedia Works of Contemporary Latin American Women Writers and Artists.
The book can be pre-ordered for a price guarantee through Amazon. For more information, click on "Amazon" for the link.
