Gonzalo Casals wears many hats: Argentinian, New-Yorker, architect, cultural producer, community builder, active participant in queer and civic life, and believer in cultural democracy. Originally trained as an architect, he has continued to become an important player in the development of innovative cultural programming in New York and beyond. He is currently the director of the Leslie-Lohman Museum, the only dedicated art museum in the world to focus on queer arts and culture.
In this episode, Florencia Rodriguez speaks with Gonzalo about how his training as an architect relates to his position as cultural producer as well as his experience in cultural planning and community building.
We would like to warmly thank Gonzalo and the Leslie-Lohman Museum for inviting us to hold our first-ever launch event in New York City.
