Found in Translation: September 2 – November 15, 2015
MACLA opens its 2015-16 season with Found in Translation, with works by award-winning, California-based artists Pilar Agüero-Esparza, Aaron De La Cruz, Rogelio Gutierrez and Patrick Martinez.
The artists in Found in Translation transform everyday objects and materials (from street signs to crayons) to illustrate the complexities of the human experience in a multilingual and multicultural world. While firmly grounded in their personal histories as sons and daughters of urban and rural California, their work speaks to the ways in which multiculturalism is communicated, (re)interpreted, and (mis)understood in contemporary society.
