The inauguration of the exhibition ‘Latin American Cartographies’ will take place today, 18 May, at BOZAR Centre for Fine Arts (Brussels, Belgium). The exhibition runs from 19 May to 6 August 2017 and is a visual laboratory of Latin American urban realities, with artists at the forefront of taking new perspectives on violence, learning, memory, resilience and mobility. In El Salvador a football match was played between the old army and the guerrillas. A Mexican group critically explores how a Belgian architect contributed to Medellin’s urban development in the 1920s. Other artists find the resilience of cities in air and mobility issues… In all there are five cities and five working nodes: Lima (Peru), Medellín (Colombia), San Salvador (El Salvador), Curitiba (Brazil) and Puebla (Mexico). The exhibition includes videos, photos, sounds, installations, research materials and more created by artists, groups and cultural operators in Latin America and Europe as part of LAIC – Culture and Arts in support of Social Cohesion in Latin American Cities project. LAIC is a project implemented by Interarts (Spain) and BOZAR (Belgium) and funded by the Directorate-General of International Cooperation and Development, Regional Programmes for Latin America and the Caribbean (Unit G2) of the European Commission. Free entry.
