January 7 - February 4, 2022
From the Goldmark Cultural Center:
“The Goldmark Cultural Center’s J.H. Milde Gallery is proud to present To Remember To Speak Our Mother Tongue, a group exhibition of works curated by Narong Tintamusik.
In To Remember To Speak Our Mother Tongue, artists explore the languages found within their dual identities. Olivia Arratia, Usama Khalid, Adrianna Touch verbalize their Mexican, Pakistani, and Cambodian heritage as Americans of color. Painting, sculpture, photography, and installation help translate the complex dialogue spoken between the artists and the world around them. Contemporary life forms complete sentences with generational customs. Familiar household objects, distant photographs, and convoluted shapes and patterns span past, present, and future lives. These images uphold the importance of cultural preservation while existing within Western upbringings. Although certain information passed down from generation to generation is fragmented, the pieces form a new whole. Their unique viewfinders allow them to find their voice and continue their lineage. This new language they speak is a bridge between the two worlds.
The exhibition will be on display from January 7, 2022, to February 4, 2022. On Saturday, January 15, 2022, an exhibition reception will be held from 1.00 pm to 3.00 pm at the J.H. Milde Gallery.”
