Love for Future Unfinished Movement

Nicole Marroquin will present some antidotes to despair including an update on Diana Solis’ temporarily lost photo archive, (Activating a Queer Latinx Feminist Archive), her research on Black and Latinx high school walkouts in Chicago, and other provocations to envision futures through recovered pasts.

Nicole Marroquin is a teacher educator and artist who explores spatial justice, belonging and Chicago’s Latinx history through projects that decenter dominant narratives to address displacement and erasure. She researches student uprisings in Chicago Public Schools and queer Chicanx public memory with the goal of recuperating public memory of youth and women’s leadership in the struggle for justice. She has presented projects at the American Association of Research Librarians Annual Conference, Kochi Biennale, Jane Addams Hull House Museum, Printed Matter and more. In 2019 she was granted 3Arts and Propeller Fund awards and her essays are included in the Chicago Social Practice History Series, Organize Your Own: The Politics and Poetics of Self-Determination Movements, Revista Contratiempo, AREA Chicago Magazine, and in Where the Future Came From. She is a Sor Juana Inez de la Cruz Women of Excellence Awardee and a member of the Chicago ACT and Justseeds artist collectives.
