El Techo de la Ballena
  • Mezzanine, Cullman Education and Research Building

This exhibition examines the 1960s Venezuelan literary and artistic group El Techo de la Ballena (The Roof of the Whale), as documented in their politically engaged publications and provocative exhibitions. With the goal of “changing lives and transforming society,” the loose-knit group of over 60 artists, writers, and poets organized diverse and daring activities during an extended period of political unrest. Together these manifestos, poems, and events show a group vitally engaged with a society in transition.

Organized by Jennifer Tobias, Librarian, Reader Services.
