No National Monument Artist Talk

Artist Talk: 7pm Wednesday, February 18th
Show Dates: February 7th through 21st

The work in this show is an attempt to reconnect and reconfigure a personal cultural and historical heritage. The result is the creation of a visual dialogue that can convey and create specific moments of rediscovery and reclamation. Rather than provide answers, the pieces in the show aim to further complicate the quest to create identities in contemporary American society.

Carlos Rosales-Silva is currently attending the University of Texas at Austin. He is a member of Okay Mountain Gallery and has recently had shows at Co-Lab (Austin, TX) and Mexic-Arte Museum (Austin, TX) in their Young Latino Artists showcase.
