Gustavo Germano’s Exhibit and Talk

The Latin American Studies Program had the honor of bringing to the University of Oregon acclaimed photographer Gustavo Germano’s exhibit Ausencias and the artist himself. The photographic exhibit is on view until August 18 at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art. Family passes are available to the public–those interested please contact Monique Balbuena at

Gustavo Germano visited the campus in May. He met with students in the Clark Honors College, visited Prof. Terri Warpinski’s Advanced Photography class, met with several faculty, advised professors and curators on their Human Rights class, and gave LAS’ annual talk, the Bartolomé de las Casas Lecture.
A video of the lecture can be accessed here 
A radio interview at the university radio is also available and will be posted soon.
