Fata Morgana, our first exhibition with Raul Guerrero, features new and recent paintings by the artist. Spending significant amounts of time in locations of specific interest, Guerrero approaches his subjects by sourcing and remixing elements that allow him to further excavate histories of place. This investigative approach is presented in the exhibition, where three bodies of work (grouped thematically by location: the Great Plains and the Black Hills of South Dakota, Latin America, and present-day Los Angeles) address the myths and realities of the settlement of Southern California, specifically as a region where Native, Latin, and European American identities converge. Taken together, the paintings depict historical contexts that address current themes of displacement, exile, and refuge. For Guerrero, this collection of locations function as a series of metaphors for examining his own Mestizo ancestry (of Spanish and Indigenous descent) and the various cultural environments in which he’s embedded.
Exhibition Dates: July 17 – August 28, 2021
