Here is copy from the article on our event:
Also injecting an activist sensitivity has been the ¡Buen Vivir! Gallery for Contemporary Art in the former B West space at 148 Elmwood. Co-founded by activists and photographers Anne Petermann and Orin Langelle, the gallery is part of the Global Justice Media Program of the Global Justice Ecology Project, with a focus on global environmental and indigenous rights issues. Given that, needless to say, the founders have been busier than ever. Recently, they were out of town for months covering Chile’s People’s Uprising, something of which most Americans remain ignorant due to scanty media attention. But Anne and Orin are working to change that, and will be opening a major exhibit of their own photo and video coverage of the uprising for April’s First Friday. You can find a preview here.
