Roxana Pérez-Méndez, a video performance and installation artist currently on faculty in UNC’s Department of Art, builds a multimedia presentation combining firsthand narrative and holographic video to create a guided tour of colonialism in the Americas through the eyes of a single Puerto Rican woman. Beginning the journey from 17th century Spain at Morehead Planetarium, and continuing through several stages to a final denouement at Swain Hall, the audience will gain first-hand perspective on the experience of immigration and the lasting effects of a colonial empire.
