“Chile: Peoples’ Uprising / An Exhibit of Images from the Front Lines was scheduled to open 3 April 2020 in Buffalo, NY’s ¡Buen Vivir! Gallery for Contemporary Art. We postponed the opening due to the pandemic. Then we permanently closed the physical gallery, which was known for its cutting edge social and cultural mission, and moved our final exhibit opening online on 30 July 2020.
“What follows is the exhibit, but it is more than that. It is also a diary and journal of a team of four people who attempted to capture the Peoples’ Uprising in photographs and videos. From Santiago to the streets of Temuco to Indigenous Mapuche land occupations in stolen Mapuche territory, this is a journal of resistance, courage, hope and love. This is about a struggle we should be fighting all over the world.”
