Please join us for the Opening Reception of SUR:BIENNIAL in Gallery One and TO SAVE THE DAY: Superheroes in Art in Gallery Two

The 5th SUR:biennial showcases recent works of local and international artists who have been influenced by the cultures and artistic traditions of Mexico and Central and South America. Unlike many recent exhibitions of Latino/a, Mexican, Mexican-American, or Chicano/a art, the SUR:biennial seeks to explore notions of globalization and exchange that take place in the ambiguous geographical, cultural, and artistic borderlands between Los Angeles and “the South,” regardless of the artist’s nationality.

Featuring: Cruz Castillo, Elisa Ortega Montilla, Ruben Ochoa, Tessie Salcido Whitmore

Contemporary artists exploring super powered human beings in comic books as metaphors to address societal conditions and cultural problems.

Featuring: Enrique Chagoya, Chaz Guest, Craig Knight, Aaron Noble, Fernando Rascon, and others

Both exhibitions curated by Max Presneill
