Join the Historical Memory Project (HMP) and the Shiva Gallery in welcoming a panel of scholars and artists to discuss the content of the exhibition, its sociohistorical context, and the significance of bearing witness. 

Our esteemed panelists:

  • Jeffrey Blustein, Arthur Zitrin Professor of Bioethics and Professor of Philosophy at City College and the Graduate Center, CUNY
  • ​Estrellita B. Brodsky, Independent Curato​r
  • Marcia Esparza, Associate Professor of Criminal Justice at John Jay College, CUNY; Founder and Director of HMP
  • Cyriaco Lopes, Photographer; Professor of Photography at John Jay College, CUNY 
  • Iván Navarro, Artist

Moderated by Lydia Shestopalova, Adjunct Faculty at Guttman Community College, CUNY; Assistant Director of HMP

The panel will be followed by a Q&A with the audience.

This meaningful event is the closing of HMP's year-long photographic exhibit commemorating the 40th anniversary of the coup d'état in Chile, which took place on September 11, 1973. We celebrate this opportunity to mark the collaboration with visual and multimedia artists through the exhibit and through conversation. The exhibit bridges the power of photojournalism with artistic methods of bearing witness; the stimulating panel discussion will emphasize the importance of memory and put the exhibit in both historical context, as well as link it to the contemporary, political and social realities in Latin America and beyond.

*This event is free and open to the public. ID is required to enter the building. Light refreshments will be served.

Co-sponsored by the Department of Art and Music, John Jay College, CUNY.
