Where: Gallery 924 at the Arts Council Gallery 924 at the Arts Council 924 N Pennsylvania St Indianapolis, Indiana 46204

Beatriz Vásquez
Feminine Bloodlines, Mexican Womanhood:
Erasing Submissiveness

Join us First Friday: March 6
Sound Meditation Experience: 5 pm
Opening Reception: 6 – 9 pm

Indianapolis-based Beatriz Vásquez’ Mexican heritage is firmly entrenched in her art practice. Her imagery of flowing colorfully patterned clothing and cultural symbols coupled with her use of the traditional Mexican technique of papel picado (cut paper) reflect the rich history of her family and her childhood growing up in the border town of Brownsville, Texas. Those memories and narratives converge with the current reality of oppressive traditions that still affect women wherever they live. In this new work, the artist has created larger than life figures to visualize and create space for an empowered and strong female presence in the 21st century.

From 5:00 – 5:40 pm, sound facilitators Danicia Monét, Devon Ginn, and Okara Imani will lead a sound and meditation experience in the gallery space with singing bowls, chimes, and indigenous instruments.

Gallery 924 will also be holding an Artist Talk with Beatriz Vásquez on Thursday, March 12. Doors open at 5:30 pm. The talk begins at 6 pm. Limited seating. Please RSVP here.

The exhibition continues through March 27.
