Peruvian artist Rudolph Castro’s “Sixty-Two Hours of Travel, Fifty-Nine Years in the South.”

January 25th, 2019

Presented by Mercado369 and the Oak Cliff Cultural Center, the Peruvian artist Rudolph Castro’s “Sixty-Two Hours of Travel, Fifty-Nine Years in the South.”

“Sixty-Two Hours of Travel, Fifty-Nine Years in the South,” is part of a project by the Peruvian artist Rudolph Castro, where he toured three South American countries: Argentina, Chile and Paraguay, in search of the stories by the families who experienced the violence of military regimes between the 1960 and 1990 in South America.

In this exhibition, stories of objects of great symbolic content become materials that take relevance in the light of the memories they evoke. This is how the stories of the victims speak through their objects, collected, donated and carefully chosen by Castro to know and recognize the words, stories and memories that they contain.
