Venue:
Wivenhoe Park Colchester, CO4 3SQ United Kingdom

Connecting through Collecting: 20 years of Art from Latin American at the University of Essex is part of the University's 50th anniversary celebrations and will bring together artwork selected by students, researchers, and academics at the University plus other material from the Collection's Archive. Those taking part in the project were encouraged to choose pieces from the Collection which made a connection to their own research interests and were asked to reflect on and write about these choices following private viewings arranged by the ESCALA team.

Exhibition curator and ESCALA Curatorial Assistant Dr Andrés David Montenegro Rosero said: “This exhibition is one of the most diverse displays staged by ESCALA and builds on the collaborative impulse at the heart of our work and the study of Latin America at the University of Essex. The students, researchers, and academics who have taken part were asked to select artworks which reflected some element of their own research interests. This provided wide-ranging perspectives from many fields of study including Art History, Human Rights, Literature, Film and Theatre Studies, Psychoanalysis, and Government”.
