Artpace is pleased to announce de los otros, the first exhibition of 2021 in the Main Space gallery, featuring José Villalobos’s work. While Artpace is closed for appointments, the exhibition will be visible from Savings Street beginning Thursday, January 14, 2021.
José Villalobos will be in conversation with Artpace’s Director of Residencies and Exhibitions, Erin K. Murphy, on Tuesday, January 19 at 6:00pm, which will be streamed on the Artpace Instagram page.
For this exhibition, Villalobos follows the story of a gay bracero worker, Porfirio, to re-acknowledge and empower queer voices that are constantly erased from history. “Being queer and coming from a lineage of bracero workers…this history is important to who I am today,” says Villalobos. “It is important to who I will be in the future, as an artist, defying erasure.”
