Fantasía Fantástica: Imaginative Spaces and Other-Worldly Collage

October 14, 2016May 21, 2017

Art Museum hours and prices HERE

Fantasía Fantástica: Imaginative Spaces and Other-Worldly Collage features the fantastical creations of four artists whose works toy with space and expand the parameters of collage. The artists, Nick Abdalla, Cynthia Cook, Carlos Quinto Kemm, and Rachel Muldez, collect objects and images that populate the day-to-day but often go unnoticed. They then reframe them as part of a new imaginative whole. The works in this exhibition offer opportunities to contemplate how fantasy and the imaginary inform daily life as well as the historical and contemporary climate of Hispanic and Latina/o art more broadly.

Space and scale are key components in each artist’s work. Each artist interacts with space both by changing the setting that encompasses their work, as well as by creating a new world within the object. From delicate and intimate scenes to sizable, yet graceful sculptures, the magic is in the details as much as it permeates the broader environment created by the artworks.
