> DESCRIPTION

Guillermo Gómez-Peña, a provocative voice in contemporary art, gives a performance on indigenous rights in the Western hemisphere.

Internationally  renowned artist Guillermo Gómez-Peña is one of the most dynamic voices  on the contemporary-art scene. A multidisciplinary artist, writer and  educator who works in performance art, radio, video, photography and installation, Gómez-Peña will deliver a performance and talk about the continuing impact of imperialism on native peoples and cultures.

Known  for his creative interrogations of the biological, political, economic,  social and cultural consequences of European contact with native  cultures, Gómez-Peña uses art to challenge our conventional  understanding of the superiority of Western civilization. In  conjunction with the performance, Gómez-Peña will present an exhibition  offering historical and cultural contexts for his defense of indigenous  rights.

Organized by John Carlos Rowe (English and American Studies and Ethnicity)
