For this exhibition, the 61 works, primarily paintings, will be installed in the Audain Gallery. The space will be transformed into an ephemeral microcosm of our natural world, providing a glimpse into another cosmic and infinite universe. Marking the Infinite is a unique opportunity for visitors to cross cultural and geographical boundaries and view the environment through a resonant Indigenous lens, commanding them to seek different ways of seeing and valuing their shared existence.
Arts of Resistance is a unique opportunity for visitors to learn about Latin American politics through the lens of contemporary art—the objects on display embody important historical and cultural memories. Furthermore, the exhibition has the potential to influence how Latin American art and culture are showcased in museums and galleries. Considering the growing global mobility of people, ideas, and objects, Arts of Resistance demonstrates how museums and galleries can become sites of return and remembering, as communities use collections to reassert their identities and political agency.
