Kansas, Missouri and Nebraska!! Our Tonantzin Society and @mulvaneartmuseum are presenting the below:
Join us for a series of panel discussions, lectures, and conversations about how artists are using their work to challenge and resist the social constructions of racial and ethnic discrimination. The participating artists examine the manipulation of borders to serve the demands of cheap labor against the backdrop of a weaponized landscape; human rights abuses in immigrant communities; the flight from violence of peoples from throughout Central America and Mexico; and the impact of new policies on women, children, and immigrant communities. These Chicana artists create the bridges between their communities and the world and give voice to one of the most devastating crises in the 21st century. Participating artists include @norma.cantu Demetria Martinez, @celestedelunaart , #DelilahMontoya.
The symposium is held in conjunction with the exhibition,
September 12, 2017 through January 5, 2018
Mulvane Art Museum
The multi-media exhibition is created by the art activist collective, Sin Huellas (Without Fingerprints or Without a Trace). Sin Huellas is the practice of removing fingerprints with acid in an effort to avoid detection for prior deportation. The artists have created a detention cell complete with razor wire and riveting personal narratives from people held at the Joe Corley Detention Facility in Texas. (Ofrendas by the participating artists and community organizations will be created during the symposium in memory of those that have passed while crossing the dangerous desert terrain to the United States.) @celestedelunaart @norma.cantu #IsabelMilan #DelilahMontoya #demetriamartinez #nobannowall #immigrantrights #indigenous #refugeecrisis #chicanasymposium #xicanasymposium #chicanaartists #xicanaartists #detentionnation #stopseparatingfamilies #ageofextremism #detentioncenters #artasresistance #artasrevolution #resist #ddlmofrenda #ofrendas #remembrance ✊🏽❤️🌎
