Join exhibition artists Juan Capistrán and Kim Fisher for a conversation about their new work in COLA 2019.

About Juan Capistrán
Using strategies of poetic terrorism, the work of Juan Capistrán, interrogates sociopolitical structures. Through transdisciplinary projects, that question notions of class, identity, power and revolutionary, Capistrán investigates the rejection, assimilation and mutation created from the collision of singular and multiple systems of ideology. In 2016, Juan Capistrán and Hazel Mandujano opened Mandujano/Cell, a contemporary visual art project space that works with local, national and international artists on exhibitions and publishing.

Mandujano/Cell is comprised of three physical spaces: design studio, book store and gallery space.

Gee’s Bend: Shared Legacy

See an installation of prints made by members of Gee’s Bend Quiltmakers’ Collective. The pieces were created by pressing original quilted fabric designs face down on a wax-coated printing plate that captured the fabrics’ texture, seams, and stitching of the original. Through this innovative process, a quilt is translated to a printed surface—a new medium to explore and share the quiltmakers’ creativity. “Gee’s Bend: Shared Legacy” is presented in two six-month installments, each featuring a selection of 12 prints.
