Open to the Public

A public lecture (4:30 to 5:30 pm) and exhibit opening (5:30 to 7 pm with beverages and hors d’oeuvres) by Cecilia Araneda, educator and textile artist, who will share the work of her group Arpilleras, Sitios Y Memoria. This group began in 2016 with the wish to reflect on human rights violations inflicted against Chilean citizens by the military dictatorship in Chile’s Valparaiso Region. Through textile art depicting the locations of such crimes, survivor-participants invite Chileans to reclaim their public spaces and resist forgetfulness and impunity.
