Join us for the exhibition opening of Mercurial Lake on September 08, 2023, 6-9pm at Uri-Eichen Gallery.

Insidiously tethered to neoliberalism, Mercurial Lake proposes the oscillation between care systems and toxic relationships. This exhibition, lake-like, features artists whose works volatilizes hot out of architectural tectonics, site construction, and power consciousness.

We will have a poetry/screening event with acclaimed poet Daniel Borzutzky on September 16, 6-7:30pm. Exhibition walkthrough on Friday the 13th of October.

Featured Artists:
Alberto Ortega Trejo
ebere agwuncha
Roland Knowlden
Fabrizzio Subia
Lydia Cheshewalla
Jose Luis Benavides
Paige Taul
Teresita Carson
Daniel Borzutzky

This exhibition project is prompted by Uri-Eichen Gallery’s 6-month special event series called People Power, which focuses on the 50th anniversary of the 1973 Chilean coup. This series brings exhibitions, programs, and talks about the history of U.S destabilization efforts to Chilean democracy, the Augusto Pinochet dictatorship, and the Arpilleras art movements. Chuqumarca was invited to respond to this series with artists that can speak to the effects of neoliberalism.

Exhibition is viewable by appointment only. Please reach out to Uri-Eichen Gallery at to schedule an appointment.

Accessibility Note: The gallery is not wheelchair accessible. Entrance has 3 steps to access the exhibition platform and ramps are not available. We will be more than happy to manually assist, please reach out if needed.
