Please join us for ARTE VOZ, a workshop led by artist Muriel Hasbun. Using art produced during El Salvador’s civil war and its aftermath, ARTE VOZ provides a framework for cultural understanding, dialogue, and education. After an initial presentation, participants will relate to a work of Central American art by connecting it with a personal memory. They will speak their own story as others listen, creating a collective memory in the shared space. These voices will take on a new meaning after the workshop, when they are added to a larger transnational narrative through the Laberinto Projects archive.
About the Artist
Born in El Salvador to a Salvadoran-Palestinian-Christian father and a French-Polish-Jewish mother, Muriel Hasbun addresses migration, displacement, and issues of personal and cultural memory in her work. An artist, professor, and founder of laberinto projects, she is the recipient of numerous distinctions, including a Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship, Howard Chapnick Grant, Corcoran’s Outstanding Creative Research Faculty Award, and Fulbright Scholar Grant. Her work has been exhibited and collected internationally at institutions such as the Venice Biennale, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Museo del Barrio, Art Museum of the Americas, Bibliothèque Nationale de France, and the Whitney Museum of American Art.
