Federico Cuatlacuatl - Tiemperos del Antropoceno

About the Exhibition The McIntire Department of Art is pleased to announce "Tiemperos del Antropoceno (Timekeepers of the Anthropocene)", and exhibition in the Ruffin Gallery by incoming UVA Assistant Professor of Art Federico Cuatlacuatl. The multi-media exhibition was produced in collaboration with the First Battalion of Indianapolis, a small community of undocumented immigrants originating in Cholla, Puebla, Mexico, who have established an annual carnival celebration in Indiana that echoes the original carnival celebration in Huejotzingo, Puebla. The exhibition considers issues of Hispanic immigrant diaspora in the U.S., asking whether cultural efforts and gestures transposed have any effect under the current political climate. It questions the nature of relationships between Hispanic immigrant communities and the forces of national and global power. The show will remain on view through December 8.
