Jaguar Dreams

Magdalena Gómez
Jaguar Dreams: Each Day A Lifetime
FRIDAY, November 21, 8pm (Potluck reception starts at 7pm)
$8 ($5 members, seniors & students)

While on an Arts International residency sponsored by the Augusta Savage Gallery at the University of Massachusetts, Magdalena documented her time in Southeast Mexico during the last Presidential campaign in poetry. Magdalena met with indigenous theater, literary and visual artists, underground revolutionaries and was welcomed into a world unseen by tourists. Her poems reflect the struggles and passion of oppressed people who struggle against tyranny by organizing and art-making as a form of resistance.
