Community through Making From Peru to New Mexico

Comunidad a través de la Creación De Perú a Nuevo México

On display through Jan 05, 2020 at the Museum of International Folk Art

Places of Memory, pairs members of two Indigenous women-led organizations: Tewa Women United/TWU (Española, New Mexico) and the National Association of the Families of the Abducted, Detained, and Disappeared of Peru/ANFASEP (Ayacucho, Peru) to explore the culturally specific ways they use art to heal community and individual trauma. Street Art and Activism, is a convening of muralists, printers, and painters whose work engages contemporary social issues with a focus on public visibility. Rivers of Plastic brings together sculptors Aymar Ccopacatty (Aymara) and Nora Naranjo Morse (Santa Clara), who both see their home landscapes being transformed by plastic waste and use sculpture to open conversations about this intrusive and persistent material.

 

Throughout the course of the exhibition, Alas de Agua Art Collective will be creating a mural inside the museum.
