- Southern Exposures: Youth, multicolored, triangles, (unity) black and white photography.
- Queens Nails: Creatures, blood, music, surrealism, humor.
- Third Base: Helps emerging artists
- Galleria de la Raza: Immigration, politics, people.
Here are some theories I spun on the way the galleries presented their artwork, the reasons maybe the curator put them in that way:
Southern Exposures: Triangles make me think of pyramids from Egypt. Creating a pyramid was a project that involved a lot of people to create. The same way all the youth in the program did some artwork to pitch in to create their exhibition.
Queens Nails: A lot of creatures and fictional characters. I couldn't really think of much on this one.
Galleria de La Raza: Talked about asylum and immigration. The area inside was very dark, and had a few lights, giving a mood (I can't find a word to describe it), almost like being in the shoes of an Immigrant crossing the border, a dark place with a few lights.
Third Base advice:
- Ways to find a theme/goal for our show:
- We all choose a theme ---> look and pick art
- Look at many artists ----> choose a theme we see that repeats in the art we see
