    Origins, Rations, Extractions

    Featuring Paula Luttringer and Gissette Padilla, this exhibition focuses on under-observed examples of two South American government’s effects on place and people.


    Gissette Padilla’s immediate family immigrated to the U.S. when she was in grade school, leaving extended family and long time friends. Drawing from this experience and maintaining relationships with those still living in Venezuela, Gissette’s work centers on family history and the political reality following the Chavez dictatorship, including how it affects daily life.


    Argentinian photographer, Paula Luttringer’s recent bodies of photographs look at a specific landscape in Argentina affected by government policy. In 1977, Luttringer was kidnapped and held in a secret detention center in her native country, Argentina. She fled immediately after her release and did not return until 1995, when she began using photography to interpret hers and others experiences there.


    The exhibit runs October 5, 2017 – January 7, 2018.
