Two major traveling exhibitions opening at the Art Museum of South Texas in Corpus Christi. The first "Native Impressions: In Our Own Words" is one in a series of American art exhibitions created through a multi-year, multi-institutional partnership formed by the Amon Carter Museum of American Art as part of the Art Bridges Cohort Program. Native Impressions, features printed portraits by living artists Daniel Heyman and Lucy Ganje. The two collaborated to portray present-day members of several North Dakota Indian nations, including those around Standing Rock. The entire portfolio was printed on paper made by hand from the pulp of trees grown on reservations. The second "Collidoscope: de la Torre Brothers Retro-Perspective" travels to south Texas from California from the Cheech Marin Center for Chicano Art & Culture of Riverside Art Museum (The Cheech) and the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Latino, an exhibition about the de la Torre Brothers speaks to the duo’s unique vision of the Latinx experience and American culture. This is explored in their work through a combination of humor and critical earnestness, borrowing elements from Mexican culture (pre-Columbian, historical, and popular) and other places in a sort of chameleonic-kaleidoscopic process that explodes into a myriad of layered images and meanings.
