Puerto Rico in the Wake of Crisis: Toward a Just (After)life of Disaster

November 30December 1, 2018



The artwork featured on our program, poster, and website banner comes from AgitArte, an activist art collective in Puerto Rico. AgitArte aims to “share a counter narrative to contest the dominant and inaccurate media coverage of Puerto Rico.” The specific piece we have featured is entitled, “Solidaridad y Sobrevivencia para Nuestra Liberación,” by Estefanía Rivera Cortés. You can see more artwork by AgitArte | Papel Machete artists, and artists in solidarity with the struggle in Puerto Rico, on the AgitArte website.

As part of this symposium, an accompanying exhibit “First Aid/Primeros Auxilios” is currently on display on the first floor of the Gordon-White Building.
