Events Cordova Video Library Graduate Lecture Series Presented by Sofía Córdova Sofía Córdova gave this lecture over a video conferencing platform during the COVID-19 pandemic of 2020. Originally intended to be a live event as part of the 2019-2020 Mills College Art Lecture Series, the talk was adapted to this format to comply with public health and safety mandates of the time. The recording starts just after the beginning of the lecture, and so did not capture Sofía's introduction or acknowledgement of the bizarre situation.
