April 12, 2019 – May 4, 2019
The exhibition will highlight my work on the themes of feminism in the present, current social issues, and my private conceptions of being a Latina artist.
Torres’ photography, paintings, collage and performance art all offer elucidations of broader cultural movements intertwined with her own personal stories. Her art grapples with racism, women’s rights, and injustice in this era. Whether it’s her own personal story of perseverance after being born “a statistic,” as one teacher told her, doomed by the circumstances of birth, or telling the stories of those who have faced adversity and discrimination because of their background or culture, her art faces the truth of our common humanity. .
