Rudolph Castro is a graduate of the National Superior School of Fine Arts of Peru. The thematic axes of his works and exhibitions are memory, political violence, and state terrorism. He has received prizes and honorable mentions in different artistic arenas including acclaim for his impactful exhibition “Sixty-Two Hours of Travel, Fifty-Nine Years in the South”. Now for the first time ever, you can witness this powerful display of creativity and meet the artist who won’t let us forget the limits of societies and their capacity to survive.
Join us for a special Art Talk with Castro, on Saturday, January 12th from 2pm to 3pm at Mercado369, located at 369 W. Jefferson Blvd, Dallas, TX 75208. Castro will delve deep into the process of his project, where he toured three South American countries: Argentina, Chile and Paraguay, in search of the stories of the protagonists and families who experienced in their own flesh the violence unleashed against society by the military regimes between the 1960 and 1990 in South America.
In this exhibition, stories of objects of great symbolic content become materials that take relevance in the light of the memories they evoke. This is how the stories of the victims speak through their objects, collected, donated and carefully chosen by Castro to know and recognize the words, stories and memories that they contain.
Following the Art Talk at Mercado369, the exhibition, “Sixty-Two Hours of Travel, Fifty-Nine Years in the South” will open at 3:30 pm at the Oak Cliff Cultural Center, located at 223 W Jefferson Blvd, Dallas, TX 75208. Admission is free and can be seen from Jan 12th through February 16th.
