This mixed media exhibition presents works whose complex forms and meanings rest in both tradition and innovation. The mixed media art is rooted in the Americas and is rich with indigenous, African and Catholic traces. The exhibition draws both cultural and geographic connections with artists whose backgrounds include Brazilian, Chicano, Chilean, Cuban, Panamanian and Puerto Rican ancestry. These sixteen artists reaffirm that nature is a neverending witness. To them, the land records with more verifiability and cqnstancy, than the body, the memory of moments, events, cultural crisis, political devastation and loss. Earth, territory and history coexist in contradiction in the allegorical art of this exhibition. These artists are concerned with issues as world migration, spiritual healing and respect for land and family.
