The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) will present the exhibition “ DIS\PLACE: Notions of Home in Latin American Photojournalism ” with works by 11 photojournalists who illustrate experiences of displacement in Latin America. The opening reception to the public will take place on November 15, 2017 at 6pm. Registration is free.

The works explore issues such as migration, violence, and humanity’s impact on the environment as a direct consequence of displacement.
