Vincent Valdez is a Texas-based painter and draftsman recognized for his monumental portrayals of the contemporary human figure, rendered in seductive detail. His large-scale works remark on a universal struggle within various sociopolitical arenas or eras, often with commentary on modern American life.

For this talk, Valdez will consider his art and shared interests in American race relations, politics, and culture in the context of the exhibition on view by artist Rodney McMillian, "Against a Civic Death."
