Memory and Forgetting: Video Art in Latin America

  • Introduction

    Elena Shtromberg, an associate professor of art history at the University of Utah, is co-curator of the landmark survey from which this program is drawn.

     

  • In Person

This program is drawn from Memory and Forgetting, a thematic program in Video Art in Latin America, a survey of artist videos from the 1970s to today curated by Glenn Phillips and Elena Shtromberg for LAXART. It showcases the diversity of artistic reactions to colonial history, military dictatorships, and political violence and includes videos by artists from Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Nicaragua, Peru, and Uruguay who confront, intervene, and at times revise historical narratives.

Oscar Muñoz’s Re/trato (Portrait/Re-treat) will be shown beginning at 6:45 when the doors to the theater open.

—Elena Shtromberg
