[EXHIBITION] Chile: Memory and The Future

This exhibition is on view at the Gallatin Galleries from September 11 through to October 11. Entry is free and open to the public.


It has been almost fifty years since the US-supported coup d’etat in Chile on September 11, 1973. 

Even a half century later, the after effects are borne within the political and individual bodies of those shattered by that violent rupture. While traumas demand a reckoning with the past, they also require a way forward—a path that is transformative, constructive and, ideally, optimistic. 

For Chile: Memory and The Future, the work of contemporary Chilean artists living mostly outside of Chile, will offer a glimpse into those visions for how the world is today and how it might be in the future, created with a constant awareness of the long historical reverberations of that moment.

Featuring Marisa Cornejo, Alfredo Jaar, Cristobal Lehyt, Felipe Mujica, Iván Navarro & Courtney Smith, Johanna Unzueta, Cecilia Vicuña.
