REGINA JOSÉ GALINDO: Bearing Witness
is a mid-career retrospective documenting performance works by an internationally-known Guatemalan artist and poet. She uses her body as a means for symbolic expression to challenge the inequalities and atrocities that have become commonplace across the globe. At times presenting unsettling topics, Galindo’s work challenges viewers to address issues of social justice, gender, race, politics, and identity.
This exhibition contains adult themes and graphic violent content, nudity, and imagery not suitable for children or more sensitive viewers. Viewer discretion is advised.
