CMHR: Freedom of Expression in Latin America
November 2, 2016 07:00 PM @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
On a free admission evening, meet a woman whose human rights story is featured in one of our new exhibits.
In 1986, when she was 18, Carmen Quintana was doused with gasoline and set on fire by the Chilean military. She survived, and with the help of Canadian diplomat Christian Labelle, came to Canada to recover from her injuries.
Carmen’s story is told through art in a new exhibit, Freedom of Expression in Latin America, using traditional arpilleras (fabric artworks) and augmented reality.
Carmen and Christian will be in the What Are Human Rights? gallery on Level 2, where the exhibit is located. They will be joined by the curator of the exhibit, Armando Perla.
