Miguel A. Aragón: Indices of Silence/Índices del silencio
Aragón’s heroic-sized prints address the war on drugs unfolding in his hometown of Ciudad Juárez, Mexico. Using innovative print techniques, such as cutting woodblocks and paper with an industrial-grade hand drill, he creates gripping portraits that humanize the victims of this violence.
Young Sun Han: The Unforever Parallel
Approaching loss from both personal and collective points of view, Han explores his family narratives through the geopolitical history of North and South Korea in the 20th century. He traces the immigrant experience across the 38th parallel north (the border between these two countries). His photo-based installations poetically depict the places rooted in these histories.
Ron Tarver: An Overdue Conversation With My Father
Tarver reimagines the African American experience in the U.S. under Jim Crow, as interpreted through the lens of his father Richard Tarver, a photographer who captured this community in Fort Gibson, OK during the 1940s and 50s. Looking back at his father’s archive and appropriating its imagery, Tarver reworks them to reflect on the history of the tight-knit African American community in Fort Gibson, re-presenting its triumphs and tribulations.
