Casita Maria Center For Arts & Education in partnership with The Consulate General of Mexico in New York are proud to present Forgotten by Mexico City based artist Jorge Tellaeche.
The exhibition will include a collection of ink drawings and colorful small acrylic paintings and installation filled with organic forms that become totems, characters and alebrijes (mystical Mexican creatures) that reference pop culture and world social issues.
EQUIPO: An art workshop to empower youth
This workshop will be conducted on Saturday, September 15, 2018, 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. Participants will learn about Tellaeche’s ideas and artistic process.
The workshop servs to empower young people through art making, reminding them they are unique and have the power to create.
The workshop is divided into four parts:
- Consciousness and Sharing;
- Music and Individuality;
- Decision Making;
- Creativity and Problem Solving.
Through the exhibition and the workshop, the artist will explore how as a people we have forgotten the importance of worth in our word and honor. Tellaeche feels that “becoming complacent with the times we have turned into a society of broken promises. In a time of apathetic fake news that pushes us to not care, we forget we are humans with rights and that we need each other. This show talks about the desire to reach abundance in love and apathy, remembering where we all come from.”
