Familiar Endeavor: Angel Fernandez | Karla Garcia | Andrea Muñoz Martinez | Ben Muñoz

17 October - 30 November 2019

These six woodcuts highlight the history of my family. They start with my grandfather coming to this country from Mexico City and end with the birth of my daughters while exploring the generations in between using imagery and composition to tell the story. The images in the work are stacked to symbolize the idea that each generation works hard to elevate their children and grandchildren. So that we can obtain things that were out of reach for previous generations. My ceiling is my daughters floor; and because we will always have children to create a better future for, the endeavor is endless.

Inspired by the work of the 6th Annual Artspace111 Regional Juried Exhibition winner, Karla Garcia, Artspace111 is pleased to present Familiar Endeavor, a group exhibition featuring work by, Angel Fernandez, Karla Garcia, Andrea Muñoz Martinez, and Ben Muñoz. Through printmaking, painting, sculpture and new media, each artist uses personal narrative to discuss their Mexican American identity in relationship to their generational experience with immigration.

 

The exhibition opens October 17th, 2019 with an opening reception from 5 – 8pm, and will be on display until November 30, 2019.
