Topography of Loss: A Symposium on Doris Salcedo: Shadows of the Absent Body

6:00pm to 7:30pm

Location: 

Harvard Art Museums, 32 Quincy Street Cambridge MA

The task of public grieving for the countless lives lost to violence requires maintaining the absent body rather than its conversion into presence. The object world houses that absence and allows for its encounter.

We may think that “visibility” is the ethical and political answer to those histories of atrocious loss that leave the dead nameless. But namelessness, too, has to be presented and is part of the contemporary horizon of obliteration and persistence. Every act of “making visible” is haunted by what can no longer appear. It invests a redemptive potential in the field of...

Mirage. The Films of Ana Mendieta

7:00pm

Location: 

Harvard Film Archive, 24 Quincy Street

Exiled from Cuba to the United States in 1961, artist filmmaker Ana Mendieta (b.1948) never forgot the ache of leaving her home, family and native soil. Running through her Super 8, 16mm and video work, this theme of displacement speaks directly to Harvard Art Museums’ current exhibition Doris Salcedo: The Materiality of Mourning.

The David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies at Harvard (DRCLAS), Harvard Art Museums, and the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts present an evening of Mendieta's striking work. See full...
