Stone’s Throw: Arte de Sanación, Arte de Resistencia
VCUarts The Anderson is pleased to present Stone’s Throw: Arte de Sanación, Arte de Resistencia, curated by Laura August and including recent work by ten artists from Central America. Working in textile, performance, video, photography, installation, social practice, and drawing, these artists reference a regional discourse around themes of resistance and healing, responding specifically to their points of intersection. What does it look like to resist structures of power that violate human rights? How might we heal from the effects of violent systems as they impact our bodies, our communities, and the landscapes that surround us?
