Yuyanapaq: To Remember Living Through Violence

February 12 - March 21, 2012

Photographs document what happened in Peru during one of its most violent periods in history from 1980 to 2000. Textiles testify to the resilience of humans to get through such times. The current exhibition at the North Dakota Museum of Art brings together photographs gathered by the government’s Peruvian Truth and Reconciliation Commission and textiles made by residents of Ayacucho, Peru, the birthplace of the Maoist group Sendero Luminoso, also known as The Shining Path.
