Reception for Occupy Thirdspace II: Plástica y Palabra
Occupy Thirdspace II: Plástica y palabra en TJ/SD explores the relationship between the visual arts and palabra (word). It documents the history of this relationship from the late 1980s to the present, through the work of artists who have lived and worked in Tijuana and San Diego.
Palabra as a concept speaks back to the oppressive function of "Language," as a tool for colonization, assimilation, and exclusion —repurposing, translating, and changing it. Plástica y Palabra represents a collective force of impulses that cross geopolitical, racial, lingual, social, and economic borders. These practices live, give new life, and assign new meaning to their environment.
Sonidero Travesura will be performing live at the gallery opening on the Dome terrace. The duo is composed of Tijuana native Omar Lizarraga and Dardin Coria.
Date | Saturday, February 19 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
Location | San Diego Central Library
Opening Reception takes place outside on the 9th floor Dome Terrace. Mask mandates and social distancing are in place. Gallery capacity will be limited to 30 visitors at one time.
This event is free and open to the public.
