      Sandra de la Loza: Mi Casa Es Su Casa

      In this exhibition, the artist interrogates historic photographs of her own Mexican American family to address issues of power, memory, and history through the concept of home. By obscuring, blurring, and replacing the bodies and faces in the photographs, she points to the codes that comprise the family photo—the landscape, architecture, pose, and fashion to investigate the uneasy and slippery terrain of representation itself. With this immersive installation, which simultaneously searches for shifting, non-reductive portrayals as it deconstructs hegemonic myths, de la Loza highlights a central paradox of our contemporary moment, where an increased social desire for fluid notions of identity coincides with a heightened demand to dismantle historic and current economic, political, and cultural violences.

      This exhibition runs January 27 through May 12, 2019. Armory galleries are open daily 12:00 to 5:00 PM (closed Tuesdays and holidays). Admission is always free.
