Exhibition Dates: April 9 – May 15, 2010

A group of uprooted and acclimating emerging artists engaged in conversations with established curators, critics and artists Surpik Angelini, Elia Arce, Margarita Cabrera, Aisen Chacin, Ruben Cordova, and Delilah Montoya to create works that both subversively and romantically embrace classification as a point of departure to investigate historical and current geography.
At the core of these dialogues lays the need to move beyond traditional categories of “Latin American Art” and to frame new definitions, visual languages and creative practices among these artists in Houston. La Lengua Muerta yields visual and performance works to be as diverse (in form, subject, aesthetics, and influences) as being Latino.
Conceived and Commissioned by Elia Arce
Curated by Aisen Caro Chacin
Edited by Ruben Cordova
