I was honored to have my work included in Remedios Sagrados. Artist and curator Suzy Gonzalez put together this powerful exhibition for Luminaria Contemporary Arts Festival 2018.
Remedios Sagrados focuses on concepts of ancestral knowledge in relation to food, healing, spirituality, and the land. As the city of San Antonio celebrates 300 post-colonial years, these artists reclaim indigenous wisdom while recognizing the complexity of identity.
I carved 120 manos de nopales representing individual amulets, providing protection within the space.
OPENING RECEPTION THIS FRIDAY 4/27!!! Lisette Chavez and I are so honored to have our multimedia installation, ANGEL BABY included in this exhibition at Contemporary Arts Museum Houston! Join us!
"Right Here, Right Now: San Antonio in the Brown Foundation Gallery at CAMH from April 28–August 5, 2018. Showcasing 19 artists and artist collaboratives, Right Here, Right Now: San Antonio includes sculpture, painting, photography, drawing, ceramics, textiles, performance, and installation by a multi-generational cohort of artists. The artworks brought together in Right Here, Right Now: San Antonio attest to the richness of the city’s creative community. Rather than attempting to provide a generalized exhibition, Right Here, Right Now: San Antonio instead looks to cross-generational dialogues around notions of materiality, identity, and performativity. From paintings and unique stitcheries to immersive video environments, ceramic sculpture, and live performances, CAMH is pleased to expand the geographic scope of this exhibition series with a presentation of artworks by San Antonio-based artists."
Lisette Chavez and I are excited to bring our multimedia installation, ANGEL BABY to Contemporary Arts Museum Houston as a part of Right Here, Right Now: San Antonio. This exhibition will include 19 artists from SATX and opens Friday, April 27th. The show runs through August 5th. It's an honor to be a part of this group representing our beautiful city!
