Join us for an opening reception to celebrate the artists behind our newest exhibition, The Mountains Wore Down to the Valleys!
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.
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.
