BOX 13 ArtSpace presents "Outer Terrains" opening reception
BOX 13 ArtSpace presents "Outer Terrains," an exhibition curated by Tere Garcia and Victoria Paige Gonzalez, in conjunction with the 2019 Spring Latino Art Now! Conference. The exhibition opens with a curator led tour followed by an opening reception.
"Outer Terrains" presents a sensory experience of the sights and sounds of the U.S./Mexico borderscape. The exhibiting artists, engaging their relationship with the Texas border landscape, reveal what's beyond the mirage from Texas' blistering sun by shining light on the complex issues of where they call home.
Nabil Gonzalez uses historical printmaking processes as she negotiates the past/present with unsolved, disturbing murders and disappearance of women surrounding El Paso, TX and Juarez, Mexico for the last 13 years. Jenelle Esparza elaborates on her work that explores the interconnected histories of South Texas cotton fields. Celeste De Luna's work is a tool to understand and deconstruct oppressive paradigms within the physical, spiritual, and psychic environment. Veronica Anne Salinas uses tape loops to investigate sound frequencies at the border.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until April 13.
