June 28 – July 20 | Jacob Lawrence Gallery

Lugar del Trabajo shares work by New York-based, Bogotá-born artists Angélica Maria Millán Lozano and Camilo Godoy. Through works that include photography, textiles, video, and works on paper, the artists question how we can represent the past and, moreover, how those representations bear on our contemporary situation. In doing so, the exhibition examines the politics of memory and the violence of forgetting. The works investigate history, gendered labors and rituals, news media, and archives as entry points for visitors.
