June 4 - 25, 2016
An exhibition of works by Dallas native Giovanni Valderas. “In Forged Utopia, Valderas appropriates two disparate symbols – real estate signs and piñatas. These symbols are juxtaposed to create mixed-media works implying the artist’s own Guatemalan, Mexican, and American lineage as well as the displacement of Latino communities in the name of economic development.”
Opening: June 4, 2016 | 6–9 pm
Panel: June 25, 2016 | 2–3:30 pm
Anne Bothwell will moderate the discussion. Panelists will include Sofia Bastidas, Melanie Ferguson, Marcos Ronquillo, Giovanni Valderas, and Carol Zou. Hosted at Ro2 Art.
