Argentinian artist Eduardo Navarro will speak with curator Sarah Demeuse and will present his artwork Poema Volcánico, which deals with the Ecuadorian volcanic geography. In 2014, while climbing the active volcano Guagua Pichincha, he created drawings from litmus paper, which measured the acidity of the gas emissions produced by the fumaroles inside the crater of the volcano.

Eduardo Navarro inserts himself into legal, spiritual, scientific, medical, and archaeological environments in which he establishes discussions and exchanges onsite. He currently teaches at Torcuato Di Tella University in Buenos Aires. During the past years, Navarro participated in residencies such as Skowheagan School of Painting in Maine, Frankfurter Kustverein in Germany, Fondazione Antonio Ratti in Italy, and the Banff Centre in Alberta, Canada. His works have been shown in exhibitions and institutions such as: From Confrontation to Intimacy, Americas Society, New York (2007); The Great Transformation, Frankfurter Kunstverein, Frankfurt (2008); Porto Alegre Biennial (2009 and 2013) and Sao Paulo Biennial, Brazil (2010); Cuenca Biennial, Ecuador (2014); We the Outsiders, e-flux, New York (2014); New Museum Triennial, New York (2015); and the 12th Sharjah Biennial, United Arab Emirates (2015).

Navarro is a guest scholar of the Patricia Phelps de Cisneros Visiting Artists and Critics program with Hunter College. The program brings key figures from Latin America to Hunter College to address topics in contemporary art and scholarship through talks with students and the New York community. In addition to this forum, Cisneros Visiting Artists and Critics conduct studio visits and seminar discussions with Hunter MFA and MA students during their residency.
