Ojalá

12:00 pm - 05/16/2018

@ Carlsbad Museum and Art Center Amigos

418 W Fox St
Carlsbad NM  88220



Looking at emerging artists, Ojalá, intends to offer an informal setting in which community members and museum goers may meet and discuss with one another, artists, and curators. ​Visitors will be prompted​ by immersive work that questions our relationship to the traditional roles of historical museums and push the flexibility and responsiveness of gallery spaces. The exhibition will present interdisciplinary work that tries to gage paradigm shifts within modes of exchange and cultural context.

The artists in Ojalá show a renewed focus an unconventionality and experimentation which has historically been revived during times of social, political, and cultural upheaval. Often blurring the lines between mediums, each artist takes into account the viewer's experience and what it means to be held accountable for representing the artist-viewer relationship.

Atomic Culture has been committed to curating exhibitions that ignite further conversation around invisible borders. This exhibition continues that conversation. The title, Ojalá , considers the word’s cross-section of cultures — the Arabic root, inshallah translates to god willing. A term that evokes cultural recall, inclination for hope — when called upon is capable of provoking change.
