Visual Arts: Current Exhibitions
March 29 – May 25, 2014
Opening Reception: Fri., March 28, 6 - 10 pm
For the first time, Agustina Woodgate’s series Skin Rugs will be presented together in a solo exhibition. These are hand-sewn rugs made from recycled stuffed animal skins. The process starts with the artist accumulating these cast aside personal objects which had formerly been lovingly held by their previous owners. The rugs not only reference the personal histories of the toy’s owners, but investigate the rug as an object organizing and displaying memories and lineages.
In his exhibition, “Recreation,” Miami-based artist Johnny Robles seeks to find and examine a middle ground between the two extremes of human life cycles: the boundless fantasies of adolescence, and the consenting rigidity of adult life. For him, there is no dichotomy between both stages.
Juan Erman Gonzalez will present Over My Rainbow, a mixed-media installation consisting of a variety of works continuing his thematic concentration of migration, trans-culturism, exile, and displacement.
In his Accumulations series, Toni Mena transforms the most common day-to-day objects found in the Salvadoran landscape such as the typical beach sandals known as “yinas” or “chancletas.” These works are tropicalized ready-made versions.
The upstairs Student Gallery displays work by local students and participant's in the Center's education programs. For information about Student Gallery exhibitions click here.
