Miguel & Christina Quarles

WEDNESDAY APR 28, 2021 5:00 PM PDT

Singer, songwriter, and producer Miguel is joined by artist Christina Quarles for an intimate, online conversation about art, identity, and mental health. Deeply influenced by his Mexican and African American roots, Miguel’s lyrical, lush, award-winning music pushes the boundaries of R&B. Quarles is a Los Angeles–based artist whose multiracial identity informs her play with bodies, subjectivity, and ambiguity in her work, which has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions internationally.
