Best Art Exhibit of the Year 2008

and You Didn't Even Buy Anything







united prominent visual arts institutions in Santa Fe, 27 artists from South America and the greater community in exploring the horrifying reality and history of the abducted victims of South America’s tumultuous political climate.

“I think that The Disappeared has moved so many people because it’s so pertinent to our times,” curator Laurel J Reuter, director of the North Dakota Museum of Art, says. “It reveals aspects of our government that most people didn’t think about until contemporary times, and it has forced us to think about torture, about what we believe our government rightfully should be doing and wrongfully shouldn’t be doing. I think that it’s so timely both in the United States and in the countries where [the abductions] took place.”

The Disappeared is being exhibited internationally, and is currently booked until 2010, with more requests for exhibitions coming in regularly.
