Exhibit shares artist’s personal experience in Salvadoran civil war

In his exhibit, “Re-constructions,” Osvaldo Ramirez Castillo explores the legacy and impact of the Salvadoran civil war, motivated by the construction of collective memory through personal storytelling.

The exhibit of mixed media drawing, stop-motion animation video, and installation work will open at the Artcite gallery Friday, March 6, at 7 p.m. Artcite is located at 109 University Ave. W. It merges issues of historical trauma, intergenerational knowledge, identity, and violence.

Castillo will deliver a free public talk on his artistic process as well as his own experience during the Civil War period in El Salvador, Thursday at 3 p.m. in room B31, SoCA Armouries, 37 University Ave. E.
