Dear friends – The gallery just sent the following press release out this morning to local, national and international media. We thank everyone who have supported the gallery, came to shows and the exhibitors since we first opened our doors in 2014. This was tough to do but all of us at the Gallery and Global Justice Ecology Project believe that when one door closes, another opens. ¡Buen vivir! means life in harmony between humans, communities, and the Earth–where work is not a job to make others wealthier, but for a livelihood that is sustaining, fulfilling, and in tune with the common good ¡Buen Vivir! Gallery – !presente! – Orin Langelle
Chile: Peoples’ Uprising Exhibit
An Exhibit of Images from the Front Lines
We are happy to announce this upcoming exhibit. Photos and videos were shot in November and December of 2019 in the ongoing People’s Uprising in Chile. From Santiago and Temuco’s streets to the Indigenous Mapuche land occupations in the communities of Liempi Colipi and Quilape Lopez, Anne Petermann and Orin Langelle had the honor of being part of the uprising as documentarians. The Red Masks in Resistance movement photo below has history with the performance of !Un violador en tu camino! (The rapist in your path). The anti-rapist anthem and dance is planned to be performed by a local women’s group at the opening – lyrics and video below.
Hundreds of women march together into Plaza de la Dignidad. Women have a lead role in the protests, including the Red Masks in Resistance movement, and created an anthem for women’s rights that has gone viral: ¡El Violador en Tu Camino! [The Rapist in Your Path]. photo Orin Langelle/Global Justice Ecology Project (2019)
