Title: The Salvadoran Diaspora through the Lens of Visual Arts, Literature and Politics
START DATE: Wednesday February 27
TIME: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Location Details:
SOMArts Cultural Center, 934 Brannan St., San Francisco, CA 94103
Event Type: Panel Discussion
A panel discussion, The Salvadoran Diaspora through the Lens of Visual Arts, Literature and Politics, features academic leaders from the Central-American studies programs at California State University, Northridge who will publicly share their research and discuss Salvadoran culture in the postwar years. Their approach supports and expands the visual discourse of the artists in Mourning and Scars: 20 Years After the War, bringing together aspects of fine arts production, literature and politics in the understanding of the Salvadoran democratization process since 1992.

The Salvadoran Diaspora through the Lens of Visual Arts, Literature, and Politics accompanies SOMArts’ exhibition Mourning and Scars: 20 Years After the War, February 1 through 28, 2013, curated by 2012–2013 SOMArts’ Commons Curatorial Residency recipient Roxana Leiva. Works of art in a variety of media, including paintings, video, textile sculpture and large-scale multimedia installations, explore the individual experiences of reconstruction and healing in the context of El Salvador’s postwar period.
