TEMPORARILY CLOSED: Pertenecer: Chicanx Artists on Belonging
Please note, this event has expired.
An exhibition of work by nine Chicanx artists that explores the possibilities and meanings of belonging.
The Fine Arts Center is completely closed to the public through April 17. FAC staff are available for patron assistance via phone and email Monday–Friday, 9–5 p.m.
As the title suggests — Pertenecer is Spanish for “to belong” — this exhibition presents artworks by nine artists that explore the possibilities and meanings of belonging.
The diverse experiences of belonging are interpreted by these artists in vastly different ways through drawing, painting, printmaking, video, sculpture, and photography.
Central to this exhibition are important works from the museum’s permanent collection, a portfolio of prints about long-standing Hispanic communities in New Mexico and a mural sized painting by Denver artist Tony Ortega depicting a street scene from the city’s North end.
These artworks depict the artists’ experiences of belonging to places that are shaped by Hispanic communities that have lived in the areas for centuries and decades. Other artists explore what it means to immigrate to a place; expressing both the hope that a new home presents and the courage that it takes to make the journey across borders.
