February 10, 2022 from 5-7pm 

Celebrate the opening of Intercambios: Art, Stories, & Comunidad in the Ruth Davis Design Gallery.

Intercambios: Art, Stories, & Comunidad presents collaborative works from artists in Madison, Wisconsin, and Oaxaca, Mexico. Featuring painting, vibrant textiles, photography, printmaking, music, and video, the artists visually explore intersections of cultures, disciplines, concepts of art, belief systems, and community.

By examining these intersections, Intercambios allows for conversation about what it means to cross worlds; life and death, art and craft, and the borders between countries, and languages. The exhibition provides an essential platform for these artists to examine what they share and celebrates the diversity of contexts and perspectives that each provides.

Intercambios: Art, Stories, & Comunidad was developed with generous support from the Anonymous Fund, the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation, and Latin American Caribbean and Iberian Studies.

Additionally, curator Nora Renick Rinehart will provide a tour of Sofia Hagström Møller: Lineage on view in the Lynn Mecklenburg Textile Gallery at 6pm.
