Celebrating 5th Year Anniversary The Latino Cultural Center, the Secretaría de Relaciones Exteriores of México and the General Consulate of Mexico in Dallas present Exhibit: Campo Unificado: La Frontera Unified Field: The Border by Beatriz Ezban September 12 – November 29, 2008
The Latino Cultural Center, the Secretaría de Relaciones Exteriores of México and the General Consulate of Mexico in Dallas will host the exhibition Unified Field: The Border / Campo Unificado: La Frontera, by the contemporary Mexico City artist Beatriz Ezban.
Relative to the exhibition’s title, Ms. Ezban combines abstract and figurative imagery to represent and confront the physical reality of those who look to cross over and confront the boundaries that separate nations, ideas, hopes and dreams. Her works, bordering on the abstract, display the artist’s interests in the exploration of space, texture, and luminous chromatic contrasts, which reveal an aesthetic that is based in existential philosophy and her formal studies at the National University of Mexico, in Mexico City. In this series of works, Beatriz Ezban has rendered figurative elements in fields of abstract planes to evoke an internal dialogue within the consciousness of the gallery visitor. The message she delivers is one of value, for she speaks on behalf of those who have been marginalized, silenced, or pushed aside.
Opening reception with the artist Friday, September 12, 2008 from 6:00pm – 8:00pm hosted by the Friends of the Latino Cultural Center.
