Tasmin Petrie to be interviewed by David Garyan

Tasmin Petrie
Tasmin’s background is in Spanish and Italian studies, in which she obtained an Undergraduate degree from the University of Glasgow. She is now pursuing a Master’s in History of Art also at the University of Glasgow, in which the focus of her current research is the deployment of ritual, healing practices and the occult as tools against patriarchal oppression in the work of Latin American women artists. Her research also encompasses rewriting the art historical canon from an intersectional feminist perspective. Tasmin takes a particular interest in promoting contemporary Latina artists and strengthening inter-cultural dialogues between Latin America and Scotland. Her most recent project in collaboration with the Latin American community is ÚNA Festival, a multidisciplinary visual arts and culture festival dedicated to fostering transcultural exchanges and highlighting the narratives of Indigenous communities from both Latin America and Scotland.
