Carolina Caycedo: Apariciones / Apparitions
Developed through a joint collaboration between the Vincent Price Art Museum and the Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens, Caycedo’s Apariciones / Apparitions reconceptualizes spaces within the Huntington through African and indigenous spiritual and dance practices from the Americas.
Umar Rashid (Frohawk Two Feathers): The World You Know Is a Fiction. You Know We Had to Do a Remix, Right? Vignettes of the Frenglish Empire in North America (1780-1795)
Rich with detail, Rashid’s paintings, drawings, and sculptures reference colonialism, empire, and westward expansion in the Americas during the 18th century, remixing global players – African, European, and indigenous peoples – in a process of storytelling and mythmaking.
