Exhibitions

carolina caycedo

Carolina Caycedo: Apariciones / Apparitions

A joint collaboration and acquisition between the Vincent Price Art Museum and the Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens, Caycedo’s video Apariciones / Apparitions reconceptualizes spaces within the Huntington through the movements of black, brown, and queer dancers, marking the museum’s collections as sites for ritual, enjoyment, and divination.



umar rashid

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.



york chang

York Chang: The Signal and the Noise

York Chang makes conceptually driven work which considers the relationship between images and text, and how collective action is influenced by spectacle and new forms of propaganda. In this project, he employs mixed media strategies as interventions into information systems, appropriating newspapers, graphic displays, found images, and sculpture to create an immersive environment in the exhibition space.

Edgar Fabián Frías: Perpetual Flowering
