Ayacucho: The Times of Danger
Friday Nov 16, 2012
Janet Wallace Fine Arts Center & Gallery
Exhibit November 16-December 16. Curated by Olga Gonzalez, Assistant Professor of Anthropology and Latin American Studies. Ayacucho, a colonial city and once center of an ancient Andean culture, was the site of a bitter war waged between the Maoist insurgency Shining Path and the Peruvian military during the 1980s and early 1990s. This exhibition represents the response of Andean popular artists to the conflict that destroyed lives and relationships, and tore apart the fabric of traditional life in the Andean region of Peru.
