Rose G. Salseda is a Ford Fellow and a PhD candidate in art history at the University of Texas at Austin. Her interests in the parallel and intersecting histories of black and brown peoples are directly informed by her upbringing in South Central Los Angeles. She specializes in the politics of race and the work of Chicanx, Latinx, and African American artists in the United States. Rose is completing her dissertation, The Visual Art Legacy of the 1992 Los Angeles Riots, which focuses on two generations of artists who have made work in response to the unrest and related episodes of racial violence. In addition, Rose is the associate director of the U.S. Latinx Art Forum, an advocacy organization dedicated to expanding and enhancing the visibility of Latinx art, and she is a core organizer for at land’s edge, a pedagogical platform for artists who are committed to social transformation.
