El Amor en Tiempos de Caos/ Love in Time of Chaos
In our current political climate, how do we preserve our most precious relationships, to our loved ones, to our surroundings, and to ourselves?
El Amor en Tiempos de Caos/ Love in the time of Chaos explores how artists preserve and pay homage to subjects that hold a special place in their hearts from childhood landscapes vulnerable to rampant gentrification, heartache, and most importantly to themselves. Alexandria Martinez, Carlos Rodriguez, Jonathan Herrera, and Natalie Aleman will virtually share their work in an online gallery open to the public, going live on June 19th – August 16th, 2020.
Our Connection to the Land
December of 2019 - March of 2020
Our Connection to the Land explores the work of artists whose art practice reflects our relationships toward the land. The works of Abiam Alvarez, Suzy Gonzalez, Narsiso Martinez, Karen Miranda Rivadeneira and Arleene Correa Valencia create dialogs from the food we consume to the distances between us and home. Through paintings, sculptures, mixed media, and photography these artists bring into discussion the personal narratives of their own experiences dealing with the agricultural industry, resilience, and acknowledgement toward the communities affected by social injustices.
