Local artist-run publication, Conflict of Interest, featured a Q&A with José Parlá about Landmarks commission Amistad América. Read a snippet below and visit their site for the entire interview.
More than 500 guests celebrated the opening of José Parlá's Amistad América last Friday. The evening started with an insightful discussion between Parlá and art critic, Carlo McCormick. McCormick has followed Parlá's work for most of the artist's career and the two have been friends for years. Their casual rapport lead to thoughtful questions from the audience. Stay tuned for a video of the Q&A.
