Colorizing Latin America

April 29, 2022

Isadora Cardoso MA'22 recently exhibited the installation "Colorizing Latin America" in Alfred Lerner Hall. The project created a platform to highlight the experiences of Black and Indigenous people in the Latin American diaspora, and also a critique against the racialization of Latinidad. This photo-voice project consists of ten portraits of members of the community, with an audio system that includes their answers to the interview questions merged with a song that is representative of their origins. The installation is a way to bridge the gap between academia and the community and highlight the cultural diversity that exists within the diaspora.

The department was pleased to co-sponsor the event with the Arts and Sciences Graduate Council.
