Visual artists Jorge Miyagui and Mauricio Delgado, & visual anthropologist Karen Bernedo Morales, will share their experiences in executing award-winning public art interventions that include Art for Memory (Asociación Cultural Museo Itinerante Arte por la Memoria) & the Muralist Brigade (La Brigada Muralista). They will help us understand the role that art has played in moments of political instability, mass protest, and COVID. Discussing recent events in Peru, they will also describe how a visual internationalism informs their political activism and creative work.
The artists are co-founders of the collective art project Museo Itinerante Arte por la Memoria which received the National Human Rights Award in 2012 & the Prince Claus Award in 2014.
