The return to democracy in Chile in the late 1980s allowed for the emergence of a radical street art movement there. The rise of museos a cielo abierto, or "open sky museums," is an important component of that movement. These street art museums function as symbolic and physical reclamations of urban spaces commonly controlled by the state and the corporate sector.
In this lecture, Guisela Latorre, a professor in the Department of Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies, will argue that these museos a cielo abierto offer innovative models for activist art action that effectively democratize city streets.
A brief reception will precede this lecture, which will be followed by time for a Q&A and discussion. All lectures are free and open to the public.
