Other 40th year Events

"Chile Vive!" opens on 9/23 and is free and open to the public.

This year, IPS's 50th anniversary, will be a bit different.

In September, there are two events we'd like to invite you to:

On Wednesday, September 11, 2013 will be sponsoring the opening reception of a new exhibit entitled, "Tapestry as Testimony: Arpilleras of Chile."  

September 11th this year marks the 40th anniversary of the military coup in Chile, and "arpilleras" serve as a living testimony to the struggle for human rights and democracy waged by the Chilean people under a repressive military regime that lasted for 17 years. These tapestries represent a living testimony of that struggle and celebrate its dignity and courage.

The exhibit will run from September 11, 2013 until September 22, 2013. The Rotunda Gallery is open from 10 am - 7 pm.

On Sunday, September 22, 2012 at 10:00 am, IPS will host its traditional Sheridan Circle Ceremony at 23rd and Massachusetts Ave NW to remember Orlando Letelier and Ronni Karpen Moffitt. Please join us.

The Historical Memory Project (HMP) proudly presents

In commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the Chilean coup d’état that began the brutal and long-lasting civil-military dictatorship of General August Pinochet (1973-1990), HMP is honored to host a traveling photographic exhibit about resistance to the combination of state violence and neoliberalism, both in Chile and in the United States.

Juan Carlos Caceres immerses himself in the local context in Chile, allowing the viewer to witness and vicariously experience the plight of Chileans under the repressive regime in the 1980s. His photos capture challenging, powerful, and inspiring moments in the prolonged struggle against state violence.

Marcelo Montealegre, on the other hand, photographs the solidarity movement in the United States, showing the support for on-the-ground resistance since the 1970s. This demonstrates and fortifies the living connection not only between Chileans across national borders, but also their diverse allies in the United States.
