Jessica Caldas is a Puerto Rican American, Florida and Georgia based, artist, advocate, and activist. Her work deals with connecting personal and community narratives to larger themes and social issues. Her talk is being presented alongside the temporary exhibition, Women’s Work, which features art from the McClung Museum's collection that was created by women. Like many of the artists in Women's Work, Caldas uses her self-determined platform to fight for independence and equity. She explores motherhood, womanhood, and surviving gender-based violence, merging advocacy with creative output. This talk is also a collaboration with the UT School of Art.
