The Poetics of Contemplating Atrocity: Doris Salcedo

The violence in her native Colombia is a driving force behind contemporary sculptor Doris Salcedo's works. How can artwork reference such violence without overtly shocking the audience? Her works are subtle in a way that invites deep contemplation on how human beings treat each other and how art can hold space for the victims of conflict and colonialist oppression. Salcedo's work answers the question: When faced with atrocity, what can art do? Register by phone at 604-925-7270 (course # 41559) or online.
