Join us for a dynamic Artist Reception 5-7pm to celebrate the opening of Emilio Rojas: tracing a wound through my body. Artist will be present.
Media Art Gallery, 25 Avery street, Boston, MA
Emilio Rojas: tracing a wound through my body is the first survey of the contemporary and multidisciplinary practice of artist Emilio Rojas (c. 1985 Mexico City). The exhibition brings together Rojas’s works spanning the past decade, including live performances and performance-films, documents of performance sustained in ephemera, photography, installation, poetry, and a recent commission in his series “m(Other)s” in a meditation upon the trace—or that which is left behind.
What borderlands, memories, temporalities, and politics do traces conjure in their indexicality or ephemerality? And how might traces embody the vicissitudes of trauma and resilience?
