movie day: Kukuli Velarde Lecture

Kukuli Velarde is a Peruvian artist based in Philadelphia whose confrontational work speaks to racism, colonialism, inequality, gender, body politics and the destruction of indigenous identity. With wry wit and irreverent humor, she skewers the oppressor and gives voice to those made invisible. Leah Ollman of the L.A. Times writes, โ€œVelarde makes serious sport of the derogatory traits assigned to her forebears, exaggerating displays of fear or passivity, roughness or disobedience. She sculpts with the vengeance of self-determination.โ€

This ART 158 lecture series event took place September 19, 2018, in the University of Utah Art & Art History Building, Salt Lake City, UT. Made possible through the generous support of the Carmen Morton Christensen Endowment, the Department of Art & Art History, and the College of Fine Arts.
