La Victoria: Resilience & Creativity, an exhibition of photographs, opens at Urbano Project on August 30.

Urbano is excited to present this exhibition as part of a series exploring the theme of Resilience and Sustainability. The "Población La Victoria" is one of the most emblematic neighborhoods in Santiago, Chile. We can imagine La Victoria as a small town with unique characteristics within the big city. This series of photographs reflects the daily life of a group of neighbors whose main legacy is community coexistence. This work is part of a collective creation produced by the SALTO Collective (Lincoyán Parada, Arthur Conning, Teodoro Schmidt, Oliver Hartley, and Samuel Shats).

In the words of historian Gonzalo Leiva, "the La Victoria population forms a space that not only cemented homes, but also generated a strong sense of belonging and identity. For this, the photographic exhibition is an aesthetic exercise, a coherent work of documentary and artistic record. It seeks to synthesize in images, like a kaleidoscope, the structuring fragments of population dynamics, because La Victoria, with its particular social, political and cultural modes of life, dispenses energy and testimonial luminosity."
