Mary Schneider Enriquez on Doris Salcedo: The Materiality of Mourning
Liz Munsell on Embodied Absence: Chilean Art of the 1970s Now

Contending with issues of ephemerality and loss within the geopolitical sphere of late-20th century South America, the artworks on view in Embodied Absence: Chilean Art of the 1970s Now find deep resonance in the groundbreaking display next door at the Harvard Art Museums’ exhibition Doris Salcedo: The Materiality of Mourning. Curators Mary Schneider Enriquez and Liz Munsell will tour the two exhibitions in tandem, discussing issues of endurance, temporality, and the political power of the artist within Latin America then and now.

The tour and discussion will begin at the Harvard Art Museums in the Calderwood Courtyard and continue on to the Carpenter Center’s Level 3 Sert Gallery.
