Construyendo Puentes at Museo de Arte Carrillo Gil (Mexico City, MX)
September 21 - November 25, 2018
My piece Cartonlandia along with a few others will be traveling to Mexico City to be part of this landmark exhibition.
About the Exhibition: "Featuring the works of nearly 30 Los Angeles-based artists, the AltaMed Art Collection exhibit “Bridges in Time of Walls” aims to address the many commonalities rooted in the shared history, traditions, and rich appreciation for art, music, and family that exist between those who live in Mexico and those who have emigrated to Los Angeles to set roots in the United States.
The landmark exhibition will feature more than 40 paintings, sculpture, photographs, videos, and mixed media works from renowned Los Angeles Chicano and Latino artists such as: Carlos Almaraz, Frank Romero, Patssi Valdez, Salomón Huerta, Ana Serrano, Vyal One, Gary Garay, Shizu Saldamando, Yolanda Gonzalez, Roberto Gil de Montes, Cindy Santos Bravo, Judithe Hernández, Jose Ramirez, ASCO, and more." -artfixdaily

HOMEGROWN at Pasadena Museum of California Art
January 21, 2018 - June 3, 2018
Ana Serrano’s immersive “garden” both references a recognizable urban landscape and pays homage to the artist’s family connection to the land in Mexico. Highlighting the juxtaposition of the built environment and plant life, the installation is composed of bright-colored walls and lively plants made of cardboard and paper. The dynamic space invites viewers to move into the sculpture and immerse themselves in the disparate yet familiar elements of city living, emphasizing the balance between man-made constructions and natural elements as well as dense, permanent objects and those that are lighter, more ephemeral.
In Serrano’s installation, plants poke up through the “concrete structure” as they would through cracks in city sidewalks or streets. The plants reference the small plots of dirt found scattered amidst the concrete of Los Angeles, particularly in the Mexican and Mexican-American neighborhoods of Los Angeles where Serrano was raised. With a particular focus on the ways people create gardens and grow food within small spaces, the installation mirrors the garden-within-the-yard of the single-family home and recalls the store fronts and urban environments that provide the soil for family traditions to take root. It focuses on how people bring the natural world into the city environment.
