-American, ft contemporary work by Latinx and Asian-American artists opens tonight at the @thebourgeoispig, 8pm! I have a new iteration of my breasticles sculpture work included in the show, which I helped organize. With this iteration (titled -matr [ii]) of my breasticles as material, I wanted to draw direct attention to the flesh-tone quality of the hosiery, and was interested i creating a spectrum matrix with these representations of skin tones.
Show description: Represented here are seven artists spanning a multicultural spectrum of Chicana, Chinese-Vietnamese-American, Cuban-American, Hmong, and multiracial Mexican-European-American heritage. Like the artists themselves, no two works are alike in either content or medium, but all are bound by a shared quality, a common denominator, of Otherized cultural endowment. We are each the resilient, forlorn, inventive expressive daughters of immigrants.
-American has its FINAL FRIDAY OPENING RECEPTION tomorrow at 5pm, and there is a LOT of Latinx/POC art to see in Lawrence! Tomorrow night is also the Native American Art Showcase at the Murphy-Bromelsick House (1000 Delaware St) from 5-9pm ft work by @irisncliff, among others!
