Argentine Artist to Speak On Art and Human Rights
Argentine artist Claudia Bernardi will speak from 4 to 6 p.m., Wednesday, March 8 at the Center for Latin American Studies, in conjunction with an exhibit of her work on display at the center's gallery through Sept. 1.
After democracy was restored to Argentina in 1982, Bernardi joined anthropologists and human rights officials in the initial forensic work to investigate mass graves created during the military dictatorship. Ever since, she has focused -- through her own art, her work as a volunteer art teacher with Oakland's Salvadoran immigrant community, and teaching in Argentina and at Mills College -- on issues of state terror and human rights.
The Center for Latin American Studies is located at 2334 Bowditch. For information call 642-2088, e-mail email@example.com or see (www.clas.berkeley.edu/clas).
