Mateo Nava opening reception at Bay Parc
National YoungArts Foundation (YoungArts), in partnership with Aimco, celebrated the opening of the second of six art installations as part of an artist residency program with a reception and art talk at Bay Parc Apartments featuring artist Mateo Nava (2013 YoungArts Winner in Visual Arts & U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts). YoungArts members, Bay Parc residents and guests enjoyed wine and hors d’oeuvres, and received a warm welcome from Tanner D. Sheehan, Aimco’s Regional Property Manager, followed by an art talk between Mateo Nava and artist, curator and YoungArts master teacher Edouard Duval-Carrié, moderated by YoungArts Exhibition Manager Luisa Múnera. The conversation introduced the audience to Nava’s new installation “Known by no name”—on view to the public at Parc Space at Bay Parc—and explored topics such as research processes, mentorship, iconography, immigration, identity and cultural heritage.
