We are excited to announce our fall exhibition- Recordar/Anhelar: Aesthetics of Undocumentedness curated by Erika Hirugami.
Opening Reception: Friday, Sept 15 at 6 pm, Dalton Gallery, Dana Fine Arts Bldg
The artworks in this exhibition are a multiplicity of remembrances that together outline the embodiment of undocumentedness as a mediation of hope. In this exhibition the recollections of Jackie Amézquita, Yehimi Cambrón, Nube Cruz, David Cuatlacuatl Federico Cuatlacuatl, Jose Ibarra Rizo, Martha Osornio Ruiz, Isidro Perez García, Elizabeth Pineda, Karla Rosas, Luis Alvaro Sahagun, Nicole Solis-Sison, and alejandro sosa converge interdependently to speak of memory, family, community, migration, spirituality, indigeneity, care, and futurity from an undocumented axis. Through the collective cacophony of visual depictions found within this exhibition, artists in the undoc+ spectrum confront their inner longing while honoring and affirming their cultural heritages. It is through collective recollections, testimonios, and recounting of oral traditions that this community thrives, is cared for, and stays safe. Here today, we remember and honor this memory and practice as integral to the undoc+ community. Individuals in the undoc+ spectrum have lived or are currently living undocumented.
We would like to thank Virginia Philip ’61 for her generosity in making this exhibition possible. The Margaret Virginia Philip Art Endowment Fund, which she established in 2006, brings an art exhibition to The Dalton Gallery every 4 years, with the goal of enhancing our students’ college experience. In a time when funding for the Arts is disappearing, we remain grateful for her support.
This exhibition will open September 15, 2023 and will be on view December 1, 2023.
