Que Prosiga (That It May Go On)
Curated by Diana Guerra and Emily Malave
Que Prosiga (That It May Go On) is a group exhibition curated by Diana Guerra and Emily Malave. The exhibition provides creative speculation into the livelihood of the immigrant identity. A malleable mapping that will lead to a recess of possibilities into inclusivity and safety. Que Prosiga (That It May Go On) includes works in different mediums that activate the senses and revive motives in a response to gesture away from objectivity and complete materiality. This project is founded upon artists who are sustaining Latinx diasporic ephemera, language, concepts, and images. The participating artists are Diego Anaya, William Camargo, Vitória Cribb, Juan Giraldo, Lorena Molina, Jean Carla Rodea, Angelica Yudasto, Cristina Barrera, Daniela Espinosa, Sherry Muyuan He, Cecilia Lopez, Piero Rossini.
