Neo-Latino: Critical Mass

September 16 through November 6, 2016

Opening Reception: Friday, September 16th from 6-8pm

Location: Main Gallery

When does a population reach a point of pivotal change? When does a group go from being an element of a community to being a leading voice in its future? These are questions examined in “Neo-Latino Critical Mass,” a group art exhibition at the Monmouth Museum from September 16th-November 6th.  2016 is a pivotal year for the Latino/a voice, especially with this year's’ monumental election. The works of art presented will delve into the importance of a collective but diverse visual dialogue around the cultural and socio-political Latino/a experience. Critical Mass will feature artists with roots in or ties to Argentina, Colombia, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, Mexico, Panama, Peru, Puerto Rico, Portugal and Spain.

 

New Jersey Emerging Artists Series Presents:     
Mauro Zamora “Extraction Value”

September 23 through November 6, 2016

Opening Reception:  Friday, September 23 from 6 – 8 pm
Gallery Talk: Wednesday, October 19 from 7 – 8pm

Location: Nilson Gallery

Mauro Zamora’s works explore how the landscape is created, administered and experienced. His approach to the landscape is archeological in nature, interested in human activity and the analysis of material culture. Emerging from a site of excavation Zamora’s work ignores the landscape’s traditional single point perspective in favor of a layered, autonomous, and often transparent space. Symbols in his work appear stacked one image over top another and often obscuring the view of images in the space of the paintings. The paintings in this body of work were created using acrylic paint, image transfers and inkjet printing on photo tex fabric, linen and canvas. Zamora’s imagery references the industrial, commercial, financial, and military practices that effect how we experience the landscape.
