The Museum of Anthropology (“MOA”) at UBC presents the powerful exhibition, Arts of Resistance: Politics and the Past in Latin America, on display from May 17 to October 8, 2018.
Curated by Laura Osorio Sunnucks, MOA’s Mellon Postdoctoral Curatorial Fellow for Latin America, this premiere exhibition illustrates how Latin American communities use traditional and historic art forms to express contemporary political realities.
Visitors will have the rare opportunity to view art and multi-sensory installations from Mexico, Guatemala, Peru, El Salvador, Ecuador, and Chile, with special attention to marginalized communities, while exploring the role of creativity during times of political turmoil.
MOA Presents Arts of Resistance

When: May 17, 2018 to October 8, 2018
Exhibit Opening Reception: May 17, 2018 at 7:00pm
Arts of Resistance is a unique opportunity for visitors to learn about Latin American politics through the lens of contemporary art—the objects on display embody important historical and cultural memories.
The exhibition has the potential to influence how Latin American art and culture are showcased in museums and galleries. Considering the growing global mobility of people, ideas, and objects, Arts of Resistance demonstrates how museums and galleries can become sites of return and remembering, as communities use collections to reassert their identities and political agency.
