Furthermore, the exhibition has the potential to influence how Latin American art and culture are showcased in museums and galleries. Considering the growing global mobility of people, ideas, and objects, Arts of Resistance demonstrates how museums and galleries can become sites of return and remembering, as communities use collections to reassert their identities and political agency.
