The MONTARlaBestia (“Riding the Beast”) art exhibition by the Colectivo de Artistas Contra la Discriminación (Artist Collective Against Discrimination) will go on display at the UC Berkeley Center for Latin American Studies on Tuesday, July 11, 2017 at 1pm.
This moving and visually stunning exhibition responds to “La Bestia” – a train that carries up to half a million Central American migrants a year on a dangerous journey across Mexico towards the United States. Through art and poetry, the Colectivo de Artistas contra la Discriminación explores the meaning of “riding the beast.”
