Nuestros Orígenes Devotos/Our Devoted Origins

Nuestros Orígenes Devotos/Our Devoted Origins. Manuel Mosquera Garcés: between religion, language and blood, a curatorial experiment that questions the memories (myths) created around absent figures in our families. This exhibition is centered on the case of Manuel Mosquera Garcés (1907-1972), Afro-Colombian politician and journalist, and the resonances his figure still has in the Mosquera family.

Our Devoted Origins places records of his public life from the mid-20th century in dialogue with ideas based on his Catholic and conservative thought that still live on the next generations. Ideas that are reflected in our bodies, our names, and our beliefs.

Curated by: Maria Paula Garcia Mosquera, MA'18

Opening reception: Friday, May 18, 5-7 p.m. Center for Public Humanities Gallery, 357 Benefit St. (entrance off Williams Street)

Exhibit will be on view Monday-Friday, 10am-3pm, except holidays.
