This year, Joya Brava turns 10! One decade of collaborative work, projects, dreams, exhibitions, journeys, friendship and learning. We have significantly contributed to the creation of a new Chilean Jewelry, spreading the word of our work and creators from this far Latin American land. But these achievements would not have been possible without the support of our mentors, teachers and partners who have come along all this way with us in an unprecedented adventure of collective self-managed learning.
BravasXDentro Interviews is a compilation of Instagram live interviews where one of our members invites one of our tutors to a casual live interview where you can join and interact.

All lives will be uploaded to InstagramTV for people to watch any time. Interviews will be held in Spanish.

Our fourth guest will be Rolando Báez, interviewed by Vania Ruiz through Instagram @joyabravachile account.

Date: 08.06.2020
Time: 5 pm Mexico/Colombia; 6 pm Chile; 7 pm Argentina/Brazil; 12 pm Spain.


About Rolando Báez:
Rolando was Joya Brava’s first tutor and curator, leading the project and exhibition “Baroque persistence: Soul, Body and Ornament”, presented in Santiago de Chile, Rancagua and Barcelona in 2013.

Rolando Baez is an art historian specialized in Andean visual culture matters. He establishes relationships between these images with gender studies and miscegenation to understand the phenomenon of identity in the Latin American popular world.
