Presented by: UIC Latino Cultural Center
Join us for an interactive dialogue with anthropologist and activist Iván Arenas as he shares his work with political street artists who played a crucial role during the broad political movement that took place in Oaxaca, Mexico in 2006. His talk will focus on the way in which the art of protest and the role of youth and women led to important social transformations in Oaxaca’s social movement.
Iván Arenas is a Mexican-American anthropologist, architect, artist, activist, and most importantly a parent. He is a visiting scholar with the Social Justice Initiative (SJI) at UIC and currently showcasing his “Chicagoaxaca” exhibit at SJI’s Pop Up Just Art Space and at Centro Autónomo.
