A Silence so Loud: Doris Salcedo at the MCA

The first US-retrospective of Colombian artist Doris Salcedo opened at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Chicago on February 20. My dear friend Maria Carrasquilla, who works at the MCA, also happened to be  in Bogotá when the public art project "Acción de Duelo" by Salcedo, took place at the Plaza de Bolívar. This beautiful text is a strong and touching testimony of her participation, and the complexity of the experience. Click here for Maria's text >>
