"Mola: Truth Maps"
This exhibit considers the meaning of molas, artisanal quilt designs made by indigenous Guna women in Panama. The molas are activated as visual and aural maps - lived maps - inhabited maps that collect and narrate the lived experiences of the people of Panama. The line that moves throughout these works, in the videos, the prints and the VR, is the line of knowledge-building: resisting, subverting and protecting.
Jacqueline Arias is a second-year MFA interdisciplinary student born in Costa Rica and raised in southern Ohio. This varied geographical and cultural history has inspired a body of work that combines experimental video, data-visualizations, sound and performance to construct alternative historiographies. Her feature length documentary film, Imaginary Mothers, about mother's voices in Costa Rica was screened at the 2017 Golden Door International Film Festival. Arias has been invited to speak about her work at Nogales Museum, Mexico and Loyola University, Maryland.
