From the Archive: Doris Salcedo Artist Talk

Doris Salcedo is known for her ability to transform experiences of physical and psychological violence into works of art with universal resonance, her sculptures and installations standing as both witness and memorial. In this artist talk presented on November 4, 2004, in conjunction with her SFMOMA installation Atrabiliarios (1992–2004) (meaning, roughly, “people that are defiant”), Salcedo reflects on the political conditions in her native country of Colombia, as well as the importance of collective cultural memories. The talk concludes with a question-and-answer segment with the audience.
