Aquí Estamos: New Selections from the Permanent Collection

February 28, 2020September 17, 2023

NHCC Art Museum

Every few years, the NHCC Art Museum refreshes its exhibit of artworks that showcase the breadth of the permanent collection. As always, the artworks featured in Aquí Estamos are global in scope and reflect the complexity of the Hispanic experience demonstrating that there is no one way to create art that exemplifies what it means to be Hispanic, Chicana/o, Latinx, and/or Latin American.

The Mountains Wore Down to the Valleys

November 4, 2022April 23, 2023

The Mountains Wore Down to the Valleys is a collaborative sound and visual installation by New Mexican artists Adri De La Cruz and Marisa Demarco. The multi-phase exhibition begins with a sound experience that transforms over the course of 72 hours as 20 musical compositions on vinyl records erode over time.  Stories of strength emanate from another record that plays multigenerational interviews with one artist’s family members. This record, a document of lineage, will endure. Once the musical compositions have worn away, etched portraits of the interviewees will be presented on the reverse side of each record on visual display.

The exhibit is an exploration of love, family, community, and the perseverance of generations. Each component symbolizes an experience—the grooves on a record much like mountains and valleys, the materials, strong and enduring, yet fragile and malleable.

Join us for an opening reception to celebrate the artists on Friday, November 4 from 5-7pm.

Visit the NHCC Art Museum Community Gallery between November 4 and November 6 from 10am – 4pm for the sonic experience.

The visual installation will be on view from November 8, 2022 to April 23, 2023.
