The Wall/La Pared: Immigration and Identity
September 29th-November 13th
An exhibition in collaboration with Maruca Salazar of Denver’s Museo de las Americas, The Wall features contemporary Latino/a artists working in the muralist tradition, as well as contemporary painters, tattoo artists and experimental media pieces. The exhibition showcases the work of 9 regional artists. The exhibition explores processes of conceiving, making and placing of public mural art. The Wall asks the question: How does mural art express socio-political viewpoints or, alternatively, advertising and commercial enterprises? DU student involvement is an important aspect of the exhibition.
Dusk to Dusk: Unsettled, Unraveled, Unreal
January 12th- February 26th
Dusk to Dusk: Unsettled, Unraveled, Unreal turns a mirror to the world, examining individual isolation, political repression, and collective ennui in the decline of the industrial age, an age in which people are simultaneously singular and collective beings. Some seek a return to the land, others seek spiritual transcendence, and others share affection for our new hybrid of increasingly alienated selves. Through painting, photography, sculpture, and video this exhibition explores a contemporary familiarity with collective darkness.
