Identity as Material, Material as Identity

The all visual image was created for the 2020 Juried Graduate Exhibition "Identity as Material, Material as Identity" curated by  Jeffreen M. Hayes, Ph.D., Juror in the UNM Art Museum. This included: Logo, posters, catalog, sticker wall and tables. 

Statement of the exhibition: 
The relevancy of contemporary art lies in its ability to reflect moments of the lived experience. Layers of textures, moments, and connections to materials exist in the experiences. Beauty alongside pain rise to the surface, reminding us of the nuances of humanity.Identity as Material, Material as Identity serves as a testimony that art is not simply about the object. It is about the human behind and in front of the object. Art is about the human condition. Material is simply that—material. Material is the lived experience. The artists presented in this exhibition tell us that art and humanity are intertwined, and the future is here. While the future is here, the past is also present. In a world where we are asked to disassociate our beings with our work, due to the hegemony at play, especially in the art world, it is refreshing to know that these artists are continuing to deconstruct the past and present into the future. The future is here.
