Employing the Mexican folk-art technique of papel picado, where intricate designs are cut into colorful sheets of tissue paper, Herron alumna Beatriz Vasquez pushes the boundaries of this widely used art form to address the humanitarian crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border.
"Hope & Loss—A Border Elegy: Recent Work by Beatriz Vasquez" is supported in part by the Welcoming Campus Innovation Fund, with additional support provided by the IUPUI Arts and Humanities Institute. The exhibition is on view in the Herron Galleries from March 11 to April 25.
An artist’s talk given by Tsherin Sherpa and an opening reception will be held from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, March 11.
Vasquez will moderate a panel discussion titled "Migration: A Force of Nature—A Basic Human Need" from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 25, in conjunction with the exhibition.
The Galleries at Herron, located in Eskenazi Hall on the IUPUI campus, are free and open to the public from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesdays.
