RHC art gallery hosts Sur: Biennial, inspired by Latino culture

The Rio Hondo Art Gallery is currently hosting the third annual Sur: Biennial exhibition, showcasing local and international artists who are influenced by the culture and traditions from Mexico, Central, and South America.

“Unlike many recent exhibitions of Latino/a, Mexican, Mexican-American, or Chicano/a art, the Sur: Biennial seeks to explore notions of globalization and exchange that take place in the ambiguous geographical, cultural, and artistic borderlands between Los Angeles and “the South,” regardless of the artist’s nationality.”(SUR:biennial, 2015)

The biennial showcases many artist’s works in all four different venues.

The artist chose venues where latino/a’s have shown to thrive in the communities in the East Los Angeles area.

The current artists on display are Juliane Backmann, Daniela Campins, Carribean Fragoza, Ed Gómez, Romero Guzmán, Lorenzo Hurtado Segovia, Gerardo Monterrubio, Jimena Sarno, and Eloy Torrez.

Each artist has a different type of art form on display raning from painting, sculptures, and new media.

Sur:Biennial is also currently on display at the Torrance Art Museum, Manhattan Art Center, and at the Cerritos College Art Gallery.

The exhibition will be ongoing until Nov. 15 and is free of admission.
