Announcing a new Meetup for The Pittsburgh Cultural Arts Meetup Group!

What: Beyond Shared Language: Contemporary Art and the Latin American Experience

When: May 1,[masked]:30 PM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Meetup Description: This event begins at 5:30. If some people would like to meet up ahead of time at Kaya, which is across the street, they have a great happy hour!

Beyond Shared Language: Contemporary Art and the Latin American Experience opens at the Society for Contemporary Craft (SCC) on May 1 and continues through August 29, 2009. The exhibition, which includes works by contemporary artists of Latin American descent (from North, Central and South America), explores issues relating to cultural identity, ethnicity, religion and both the fragility and fluidity of their visual language. A free, public reception is planned for Friday, May 1, from 5:30?8 pm.

While the title Beyond Shared Language suggests a commonality flowing out of shared language, Latin America is far from a monolithic culture. The exhibition features 37 works in a range of craft media such as clay, glass, metal, wood, fiber and mixed media, by 14 artists whose countries of origin, migration patterns, socioeconomic profiles, multiple language dialects, and physical characteristics differ. These works demonstrate a wide range of contemporary materials and forms including, but not limited to, expressions rooted in traditional materials, structure, processes and history, as well as art that explores unexpected relationships between craft and painting, sculpture, conceptual and installation art.
