James Smolleck: Transmissions from the Blue Egg

May 31 through July 29, 2018
"Borrowing elements from classical mythology, numerology, occult science (theosophy) and sacred geometry, James Smolleck’s collage work, drawings and paintings are potent yet whimsical parables that unravel the traditionally hermetic practice of self-discovery. His hybridized subjects—at once humanoid and animistic—roam vast landscapes, occupy sacred interiors and partake in esoteric rituals upon backdrops influenced by everything from the Flemish Masters and Medieval architecture, to theatrical backdrops and science fiction."

Mari Hernandez: What Remains

May 31 through July 29, 2018
"Acting as photographer, subject, make-up artist, and designer, Mari Hernandez alters her identity and physical appearance through the use of make-up, prosthetics, wigs, costumes, and props. Through narrative, she reinterprets histories and proposes new ones. Elements of performance distinguish her work from other modes of photography and highlight the staging of identity, gender, and action."

Daniela Cavazos Madrigal: Tarararara

July 8 through 29, 2018
"Tarararara, is a series of narratives exploring Cumbia — a popular genre of music in Mexico, where its dance-until-you-drop rhythm is at the center of many familial gatherings. Daniela Cavazos Madrigal pays homage to the heredity of Cumbia by investigating an important part of her cultural identity. She breaks down the language used in Cumbia songs, filtering Spanish lyrics through Google Translate and rediscovers meaning through the distortion. Cavazos Madrigal uses mostly heirlooms belonging to her late grandfathers and relatives, as well personal and found objects, to construct this project. Tarararara is the syllabic manifestation of a quinceañera and carne asada on a Saturday night."
