[image-1]Former Charleston resident Carlos Salinas will give a free lecture on his journey to the Colombian Amazon as well as his interaction with shamans and various indigenous communities. This is in conjunction with the exhibition Smoke and Mirrors at the City Gallery at Waterfront Park. From the press release:

“Carlos will show samples of his videowork and describe the grueling and often-frightening personal journey he has had to undertake to win the confidence of these communities, who survive against all odds. Carlos has presented his research to a variety of audiences, including the National Museum of the American Indian, Amnesty International- Washington, the Institute for Policy Studies, Columbia University, Fordham University, and Hofstra University.”

Lecture is Thurs. Dec. 4 at 5 p.m. at the City Gallery.
