Guadalupe Maravilla | Requiem For My Border Crossing

The artist Guadalupe Maravilla was brought to the United States by a coyote (or human trafficker) as an undocumented eight-year old, fleeing civil war in El Salvador. Hear from the artist and from assistant curator Marcela Guerrero about how this experience informed his series A requiem for my border crossing, featured in Pacha, Llaqta, Wasichay: Indigenous Space, Modern Architecture, New Art.
