In 1976, a group of Chileans in exile painted a mural on a student common room wall in the Leeds University Union building. Later hidden behind a temporary ceiling and kitchen wall, the mural was finally uncovered in 2017.

To mark the restoration and interpretation of the mural, this symposium will examine the different visual and political contexts within which we can situate the LUU Chilean mural. Invited academics and arts professionals will present a series of examples which explore the politics and poetics of public art, politics and murals in Chilean, South American and other global contexts.
