> DESCRIPTION

N.N. (Ningún Nombre/No Name), a performative installation by artist Mandy Cano Villalobos, is on view November 10th through December 10th at La Casa Cultura Calles y Sueños.  This exhibition commemorates those who died under the South American dictatorships of the 1970s and 80s.  Engulfed by rusted boxes containing CIA documents, photographs and newspaper clips, the artist retrieves worn images and sews over the victims depicted.  To the side of her, Cano Villalobos amasses a second pile of indistinguishable victims upon the floor.  Her endless task questions the process of healing and remembrance that continues in present-day Chile, Argentina, and Brasil, among other countries.  The artist also brings to light U.S. and Latin-American relations, both then and now. 

An opening reception will be held Saturday, November 10th, 7-9pm at Calles y Sueños, 1900 South Carpenter, Chicago, IL 60608.  Performances are scheduled during the opening, on November 16th and 17th at 7pm and December 10th at 7pm.  For more information, call 773-208-0553, or contact Calles y Sueños-Chicago at cys_94@hotmail.com
