• Thursday March 6 at 5 p.m. in the Universidad Jorge Tadeo Lozano, art historian, curator, and writer, Joseph Jacobs will give his lecture After the Second World War which explores the roots of contemporary art as they were formed in the 1950s and 60s.

• In honor of International Women’s Day, the first International Biennial of Contemporary Art of Cartagena de Indias invites you to join us for a panel discussion on Gender and Violence on Friday March 7 at 5 p.m.

Moderated by Artistic Director, Berta Sichel, the panel includes Biennial artists Beth Moysés (Brazil), Libia Posada (Colombia), and Ruby Rumié (Colombia) and will investigate the issue of violence towards women, and in particular, the ways that contemporary artists engage with this subject in their work.

• On Saturday March 8 at 5 p.m., the performance piece and Biennial commission, Desatar tiempos, by Beth Moysés will be presented at the Centro de Formación Cooperación Española. The debut of Beth Moysés’s new performance includes the participation of over twenty Colombian women who have, in some way, been affected by violence. The artist utilizes what she calls “structured improvisations” so women may participate in ritual explorations of their experiences with violence, hoping, that by embodying and integrating these memories through performance, trauma and pain can be released.
