ABOUT THE SPEAKERS
Guadalupe Maravilla is a transdisciplinary artist, healer, and activist, born in San Salvador, El Salvador, who utilizes his practice as a forum for collective healing. Anchored by the integration of his autobiographical experiences with issues of migration, displacement, and illness, Maravilla’s work centers communities that have historically been marginalized. Maravilla uses art to shed light on the collective traumas of undocumented immigrants and cancer survivors and empowers them with the tools to assist with their process of healing. For his exhibition at the MCA Denver, Maravilla will present new and recent work including a Retablo painting, a site-specific Tripa Chuca mural, and three Disease Throwers sculptures, one of which was specially commissioned for the exhibition.
