Year of Water: Music & Arts Library Exhibition

Year of Water: The Amazon and Its Tributaries is the new exhibition in the Music & Arts Library. Highly focused, it presents topics related to the river, including the music of Philip Glass’s Aguas da Amazonia, the Yanomami culture in the work of shaman Davi Kopenawa, the dance of the Lia Rodrigues troupe, the photography of Claudia Andujar, as well as conceptual topics (buen vivir, extractivism, among others).  The exhibition was curated by Elizabeth Davis, with additional input and technical assistance from Emily Lavins and Nick Patterson, and links directly to the work of the CSSD Working Group, “Environmental justice, belief systems, and aesthetic experiences in Latin America and the Caribbean."
