> DESCRIPTION

Mujeres de Juárez:

The Rubín and Paula Torres Gallery and The Kraft Gallery

Since 1993, more then 500 women have been killed in Ciudad Juárez in the northern Mexican state of Chihuahua. For some time now, Mexican and Mexican American artists have been sensitive to the subject of Women of Juarez and have worked on diverse projects to share their perspective on this disturbing situation. The thought provoking pieces throughout the exhibition serve as a chronicle of the struggles of Mexican women and the grievous deaths in Ciudad Juárez.

¡Ni uNa más!
Desde 1993, más de 500 mujeres han sido asesinadas en Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, México. En esta exposición, artistas mexicanas y méxico-americanas se reúnen para dar una perspectiva personal de un asunto tan inquietante. No podemos permitir que nuestra generación o futuras generaciones ignoren u olviden la
perdida de tantas vidas en Ciudad Juárez.
