Join us for a presentation and discussion with Liliana Wilson and María Teresa Pizarro, two women who left Chile during the Pinochet regime (1973-90) and have since used their experiences with state violence and displacement as the basis for their art and political organizing. 

Liliana Wilson is a Texas-based visual artist whose work has appeared in the seminal women of color anthology, This Bridge Called My Back: Writings by Radical Women of Color. A book on her work entitled Ofrenda, edited by Norma Cantú, was also published by Texas A&M Press in 2015. 

María Teresa Pizarro is a Chicago-based Chilean feminist activist. In the 1980s, María Teresa and other Chilean women formed a branch of MEMCh, an organization that was central to the anti-Pinochet feminist movement in Chile, and worked to challenge the regime from abroad.
