Coping with Violence: Manifestos and Metamorphosis

Title

Coping with Violence: Manifestos and Metamorphosis

Date

Thursday, April 26, 4:30pm – 6:00pm

Creator

Beatriz Guzmán Velásquez

Description

In the changing landscape of Latin America, artists' books and zines offer a site for direct creative expression. MFA Painting and Drawing candidate Beatriz Guzmán Velásquez discusses the aesthetics of manifestos and metamorphoses that unite selected new acquisitions of Joan Flasch Artists' Book Collection, giving a glimpse into how artists react to the violence their homeland endures. Guzmán Velásquez interprets these works through her background in border studies, postcolonial theory, and her own visual investigation of trauma, coping mechanisms, and cultural understandings of death.
