Caption"The Politics of Dia de Los Muertos" ***** Commentary by Rene Yañez and Carlos Córdova. Moderated by Patricia Rodriguez Amid a rich variety of Day of the Dead altars on exhibit throughout San Francisco’s Mission District this month Cary Cordova offers a lecture on “The Politics of Dia de Los Muertos: Mourning Art & Activism in 1980s San Francisco.” Cary keynotes the evening with a slide lecture describing how Day of the Dead altars developed from intimate family events to a means of delivering political values and concepts. “Artists in this period used ‘Day of the Dead’ to illuminate global issues of poverty and warfare and expressed a collective yearning to overcome oppression ” comments Cary about the theme of her lecture.

Her Ph.D. dissertation explores the cultural history of the Mission District.
