Michael Arcega: BoundarySpan

Date/Time
Date(s) - November 19, 2019
5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Michael Arcega creates art informed by language, history, and geography. He adopts methodologies used in the anthropological study of world cultures that often emphasize “otherness,” but turns the tables, positioning North America as ‘the other”. As a part of the BoundarySpan exhibition on display in the Natalie and James Thompson Art Gallery through February 21, 2020, Arcega will discuss his work and how elements of his practice relate to the theme of the exhibition.
