El Taller Latino Americano presents AriZONA, Artists Respond to the Immigration Issue, curated by Andrea Arroyo.
Following the approval of the new anti-immigrant law in Arizona, visual artist and curator Andrea Arroyo invited New York artists from diverse backgrounds to participate in this exhibition by creating new work or showing existing work expressing their views on the subject. Artists responded enthusiastically, submitting works that address an important contemporary subject in a variety of creative ways. The exhibit features works that range from overtly political to nearly abstract, created in drawing, painting, print, collage, photography, new media and sound.
The aim of this exhibition is to contribute to the conversation on the critical issue of immigration and associated topics, such as human rights, social justice and globalization.
