The Anya and Andrew Shiva Gallery at John Jay College of Criminal Justice proudly presents, Bearing Witness: Art and Resistance in Cold War Latin America. While censorship, kidnapping, torture, and murder became common tactics for repressive governments throughout Latin America during the Cold War, many artists from the region responded by producing poignant works of art that speak out against these atrocities. This exhibition brings together three distinct bodies of work that do so through documentation, poetic subversion and revelation.

Gallery Hours: 1pm-5pm, M-F, or by appointment
