EVENT DESCRIPTION FROM TUFTS UNIVERSITY ART GALLERIES
How do contemporary artists work both across and against borders to produce social and political change? This panel turns to artists, based in both the U.S. and Guatemala, to consider aesthetic strategies that work to dismantle imperialist histories and build decolonial alliances across time and space. Featuring art historian Kency Cornejo and artists Benvenuto Chavajay, Sandra Monterroso, and Beatriz Cortez, and moderated by Adriana Zavala, Associate Professor, History of Art and Architecture and Studies in Race, Colonialism, and Diaspora, Tufts University.

Organized in partnership with Indigenous Performance, a course in Tufts Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies, taught by Lily Mengesha, Assistant Professor, Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies and Studies in Race, Colonialism, and Diaspora, Tufts University. This talk will also be presented online in English with Spanish interpretation.
