Carlos Rosales-Silva | Border Exchange

September 30, 2020 @ 12:00 am - February 15, 2021 @ 12:00 am

Free

An installation in the HUB-Robeson Center Wall Case, Rosales-Silvas exhibition Border Exchange pairs two of the artist’s paintings with a site-responsive wall painting. Rosales-Silva’s work exists in the space between borders and between classification. A meditation on the ever-expanding histories of Brown peoples in the United States, his abstract works consider the vernacular cultures of the American Southwest, the western art historical canon, and the political and cultural connections and disparities between them. Spoken and written Eurocentric language, as a system of knowledge, has been historically weaponized against Brown communities. Rosales-Silva believes it is important to adapt to, invoke, and reimagine the weapons of colonization, utilizing art-making to reconnect with and create innovative methods of non-western communication untethered from written or spoken language.
