Considering Art Podcast – Francisca Sosa López, Venezuelan mixed media artist

In this episode, Francisca talks about how publicising the plight of her country, which has seen six million of its inhabitants leaving this beleaguered state, has become the main focus of her artistic practice. She talks about her childhood, leaving for the United States and then the UK for her art education, her Million Bag Project, her public letters about her relationship with Venezuela, and how she expresses her feelings in her paintings and installations.
