Here There, Acá Allá

In a pedagogical photography experiment, pairs of children and their parents– first and second generation Mexican-Americans– were given 35mm disposable cameras and told to photograph elements of their daily lives. Analog cameras were chosen specifically because of the forethought required for taking a photo. The experiment aimed to show the difference and crossovers in content, themes, and styles between the generations. The experiment was curated by Susana Arellano and Rafael Gamo, and the opening reception for the show is this Friday February 20th from 6 to 9pm

Quisqueya Henríquez: Double Double, Framed & Framed

Renowned Caribbean artist Quisqueya Henríquez has an opening reception for her solo show this Wednesday at Lynch Tham. The show comes from a series she began with her residency at the Bronx Museum. She incorporates well-known images of artworks at institutions like the MOMA as a way to open up a discussion about authorship in this photo-sharing Internet day and age. The reception is from 6 to 8pm in the Lower East Side.

Donna Huanca: Echo Implant

Donna Huanca creates architectural sculptures that use textiles and ephemera. The sculptures are meant to be used in a type of performance where live models interact with the materials giving them a life beyond the wall. Many of these textiles are deconstructed and dipped in paint to be hardened. The show is up this week sans performances, but you can catch two more performances on March 1st and March 8th from 3-6pm both days.
