    This 90-minute screening features video artworks that highlight opposing and often discordant realities as they are lived in different contexts within Latin America. The tension resulting from the often-uncomfortable encounter of disparate gender, class, and political realities, among others, is uniquely performed in a variety of artist videos ranging from the 1970s until today. Whether artists stage this opposition through their bodies by resisting authoritarian regimes or through bringing together incongruous historical moments, their works are uniquely positioned to reflect on and respond to discord.

    Organized by Glenn Phillips, curator at the Getty Research Institute, and Elena Shtromberg, associate professor at the University of Utah.
