For today's episode of 'Uncovered' we will be talking to artist and anthropologist, Marcel Reyes-Cortez. Marcel combines his concern for social and political issues with his background in anthropology and art to create powerful commentary on current events. Marcel recently launched a new solo exhibition at VT Artsalon: 'Join All Your Tears Until You Make Them Metal'. This exhibition was inspired by recent civil unrest across the world, particularly the uprisings that broke out in Chile during 2019. Hit play to listen to part one of our interview with Marcel, where we talk about his background, inspirations, and the power in protest.
