Exhibition and Closing Lecture: Art in Motion, Guayasamín's Ecuador Unframed


Location: Notre Dame Center for Arts and Culture, 1045 W. Washington Street

This exhibit is a collaboration between a faculty research group headed by Carlos Jáuregui and a teaching group headed by Tatiana Botero with professors Parroquin, Mangione-Lora and Topash-Rios at the University of Notre Dame. It combines art and technology and explores questions of race, identity, and politics. It was designed for both the Notre Dame and South Bend/Mishawaka communities and encourages a conversation between the two.

Art in Motion / Guayasamín’s Ecuador Unframed bridges cultural theory, mathematical analysis, media visualization, and computer programming in an innovative installation of the mural Ecuador (1952), a major art work by Oswaldo Guayasamín, one of the most prominent Latin American artists of the 20th century.

Professor Regina Harrison of the School of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures at the University of Maryland will present the closing lecture.

Free round trip shuttle service will be available from Notre Dame’s Library Circle, leaving at 4:30, 5:15, and 5:45 p.m.

This event was sponsored by The Kellogg Institute for International Studies, the Institute for Scholarship in the Liberal Arts (ISLA), the Notre Dame Office of Research, The Center for Social Concerns (CSC), the Center for Creative Computing, the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures, the Notre Dame Center for Arts and Culture, a Teaching Beyond the Classroom grant, The Morris Inn, The Pokagon Band of Potawatomi, and The Frame Factory.
