About the Speakers

All Three of the Estamos Bien (Rodrigo Moura, Susanna V. Temkin, and Elia Alba)

Susanna Temkin (middle) is a Curator at El Museo del Barrio, where she most recently organized the museum’s fiftieth anniversary exhibition, Culture and the People: El Museo del Barrio, 1969-2019, drawing from objects from the Permanent Collection. Prior to this, she served as Assistant Curator at Americas Society in New York, as well as the research and archive specialist at the Cecilia de Torres, Ltd., where she assisted in co-authoring the digital catalogue raisonné of artist Joaquín Torres-García. Temkin earned her master’s and PhD degrees from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, where her research concentrated on modern art in the Americas, with a focus on Cuba. She has published essays and reviews in the Rutgers Art Review, Burlington Magazine, and Hemispheres, and authored the chronology of Concrete Cuba: Cuba Geometric Abstraction from the 1950s, produced by David Zwirner Books.

Elia Alba (right) is a multidisciplinary artist, who works in sculpture, photography and video. She has exhibited at El Museo del Barrio, New York; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Smithsonian Museum of Art, Washington D.C.; Perez Art Museum Miami; National Museum of Art, Reina Sofía, Madrid; as well as at the 10th Havana Biennial. Alba has received the Studio Museum in Harlem Artist-in Residence Program; the Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant and most recently the Anonymous Was A Woman award. Elia is also a published author. Her recent book, The Supper Club, (Hirmer, June 2019), was critically acclaimed by The New York Times and produced by the Shelley and Donald Rubin Foundation. Elia brought together artists, scholars and performers of diasporic cultures to examine race and culture in the United States through photography, food and dialogue.

Thank you to Julia P. Herzberg, PhD, Program Committee Member of ArtTable’s NY Chapter for organizing this program.
