Opening Reception for DE LA TIERRA | Curated by Michael Anthony Garcia

Opening reception for the art exhibit, DE LA TIERRA.
For this exhibition, guest curator Michael Anthony Garcia assembled a varied group of artists to create works within a similar structure. The resulting exhibition explores the vibrant imagery of Tomás Rivera’s novel and the immigrant/migrant worker issues at the heart of it. This opening reception for the exhibition is structured to be a nexus of conversation about the topics, images, and issues that Rivera wove into the vignettes of his novel — both between the creatives (curator/ artists) involved, as well as the visitors within the gallery space. We invite you to join us in conversation about this influential literary work.
