The exhibition LETTERS explores the challenges of conveying ourselves to others through the dual lenses of place and situated histories. Bringing together works that resonate with memories trying to be unearthed, this exhibition delves into the narratives that shape our experiences and identities. From the loss of loved ones to the ways that society confines and segregates, to the relentless attempts to bridge cultural and physical divides through gestures, LETTERS seeks to illuminate the difficulties of forging connections despite the barriers of distance and difference.

Participating Artists: Eli Greene, Michelle Sáenz Burrola, Karen Rodríguez, Jazmine., and Dan Paz. This exhibition is organized and curated by the artist David Cordero.
