Interpreting Displacements and Migrations through the Arts and Sciences
A thematic initiative at the David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies for the academic year 2016-17, in connection with the Harvard Art Museums' special exhibition Doris Salcedo: The Materiality of Mourning (November 4, 2016 to April 9, 2017). The exhibition brings together a deeply evocative constellation of recent works by Doris Salcedo, the renowned Colombian sculptor and visual artist known for her sculptures and public installations that respond to the testimonies of survivors and victims of political violence.
DRCLAS is pleased to collaborate with the Museums and other units on campus to offer a series of events drawing attention to the causes and effects of displacement in Latin America.
