Memories Of Diaspora: Immigration Narratives of Los Angeles
This exhibition focuses on the personal struggles, hopes, and dreams that comprise immigrant experiences. On display is work by Art Division students and faculty as well as partners in Oaxaca. Some artists explore their identity as Los Angelenos of Mexican or Central American heritage while others highlight complex issues involved in considering the meaning of home or in traveling north to cross the border.
Art Division is a community organization dedicated to training and supporting young adults interested in studying visual arts. Several Art Division students have participated in residencies in Oaxaca to learn printmaking skills from master artists there. Many of the works chosen for Memories of Diaspora are a result of this symbiotic printmaking relationship.
This installation is a reimagining of an earlier exhibition and was curated by Art Division students Mateo Carrero, Laila Telles, Nancy Torres and Vianey Valdez.
