Alejandra Abad: Un País Olvidado: Reliquias de Vigencia (Forgotten Country: Relics of Agency)
The Arbor Institute presents the public MFA thesis exhibition of artist Alejandra Abad: an immersive installation of animated vignettes – composed with Venezuelan objects, found footage, imported goods, food, and stories – that exist in a magical realist visual landscape, weaving real stories and fiction together to embody collective memories about immigrant survival. The shared and unique experiences of Venezuelan migrants are expressed through non-linear animations of mythological structures born from the trauma, memories, and nostalgia that have resulted from being forced to leave one’s country in search of a better life.
Amy Hoagland and Jennifer Cole will join Arbor Institute Directors Sam Randall and David Levitt, Firehouse Art Center Curator Brandy Coons, and NeST Co-Director Tara Knight for an online panel discussing the project and its research findings on May 18th at 7pm via zoom. > Register for the link here.
