Marlon Garcia Arriaga, Panzos: 25 Years Later, July 12-August 3, 2007

Panzós: 25 Years Later… an exhibit which toured across the Maritimes making its final stop at the Khyber, featured original painting, descriptive banners, and portrait, journalistic and forensic photography by Guatemalan artist Marlón Garcia Arriaga. The exhibit tells the story of small Guatemalan town (Panzós) and a large Canadian mining corporation (Inco) that shared an area of the continent for almost half a century. It centers around the lives, opinions and actions of the survivors of the Panzós massacre- especially the women survivors, who have been at the forefront of the resistance.

Coinciding with this exhibition, the Khyber also hosted two screenings: Sipakapa Non Se Vende and The First Voices Project, an artist talk with Marlón Garcia and a letter-writing event for Peter MacKay, Minister of Foreign Affairs.
