Join us for an interactive conversation with photographer and writer John Sevigny who will share his use of art installations to unveil the social atrocities and biases against women in Latin America. He will focus on his Ladies’ Bar exhibition, which highlights the treatment of clandestine bar sex workers in Mexico, and his work on the Ilopango Prison in El Salvador that emphasizes the systemic structures that lead thousands of young women there.

John Sevigny is a well-traveled artist and public speaker who shares his photographic and literary works on immigration, sex workers, poverty, and the everlasting tension between captivity and freedom in Latin America.
