National Hispanic Cultural Center Art Museum
¡Mira! The Center turns twenty in 2020 and we will be celebrating our cumplean~os all year long!
Meso-Americhanics (Manuevering Mestizaje): de la Torre Brothers and Border Baroque opened at the NHCC Art Museum in September 2008. The bi-national brothers, Jamex and Einar de la Torre, were born in Guadalajara, Mexico and now live and work on both sides of the border. Their blown glass and mixed media sculptures and installations grapple with the complexity of hybrid and transnational identities through clever, humorous, and sometimes biting social critique. Los Hermanos de la Torre have received significant recognition and awards for their artistry and cultural commentary. Their work has been shown around the globe in museums and galleries.
The NHCC Art Museum permanent collection is home to their piece titled, Marte y Venus, which will be featured in the upcoming exhibition, Mira Mira On the Wall: Reflecting on 20 Years of NHCC Exhibitions.
Many NHCC events have been postponed or cancelled at this time but we invite you to continue joining us on social media to stay connected virtually. ¡Miranos! And thank you for being a friend of the NHCC.
