About this event: “This exhibition is comprised of a series of ceramic objects inspired by my grandmother, Marta Echeverri Gutiérrez (1925-2016). Due to instability and political unrest in our native Colombia during the 1990s and early 2000s, hundreds of thousands of people, including most of our family members, left the country. Marta however, did not. When I moved back to Colombia after more than a decade in exile, Marta and I spent hours together in her dining room, sometimes in silence. We shared meals, looked at photographs, discussed her childhood, marriage, and her experience relocating to Cuba in the 1940s.”
