UNEARTHED: DESENTERRADO October 4, 2018 – January 6, 2019 BSC x For Freedoms: 50 State Initiative Featuring Adriana Corral This work brings to surface an often-overlooked part of American history that we see resemblances to in both historic and current events. Unearthed: Desenterrado continues Corral’s investigations into injustice and human rights and the presentation of the work beyond its site-specific installation ensures these issues reach new communities and contexts. Blue Star Contemporary, presents this billboard iteration of Unearthed: Desenterrado as a participant of For Freedoms: 50 State Initiative. Since 2016, artist–founded For Freedoms has produced exhibitions, town hall meetings, billboards, and public art to spur greater civic life.
