NINE: Aún Recordamos Aquel Hogar

NINE: Aún Recordamos Aquel Hogar​

MARCH 2 – 29, 2018

Curated by Sean FitzGibbons in conjunction with the Fort Worth Art Dealer’s Association’s Spring Gallery Night 2018.


Delving into methodologies of visual narrative, Aún Recordamos Aquel Hogar, investigates the use of place within visual art story-telling. Five contemporary LatinX artists create narrative artworks that employ the setting/location as a character within the story. In literature, film, and TV shows, this trope can be an immediate and sometimes overt metaphor created by the author. However, within the context of fine art this approach can be subtle or concealedEach of the five artists in Aún Recordamos Aquel Hogar, employ the “setting as character” trope differently. In this exhibit, the artists’ work is presented as separate case studies of an allegorical process of imbuing an inanimate landscape, physical location, psychological space, or a geographically-based community with a character arc integral to the plot. History and place combine to create experiences; these experiences are essential to story-telling. Aún Recordamos Aquel Hogar showcases five contemporary LatinX artists from South Texas. As any shared culture provides, these artists have analogous locations and experiences in common, but individually, they each have personal identities that feature intimate settings and narratives. This exhibit is meant to share unique narratives of a common culture.
