The Institute of American Indian Arts Museum received support for an exhibition of two suites of prints by artist Antonio Frasconi: Los Desaparecidos—The Disappeared, 1981 (suite of 18 prints) and In Memoriam, 1981-88 (suite of 56 prints.) Completed over the course of a decade, the extended series of woodblocks and monotypes push the viewer into recognizing a collective culpability, and into remembering. Frasconi’s art successfully portrays the horrors of torture, incarceration, and killing while preserving the memory of specific people. Frasconi’s work will be on view November 2007 through February 2008.
