Art Truck 2012-13: Carlos Rosales-Silva
UMOCA is happy to present a new art truck installation by Carlos Rosales-Silva opening September 7, 2012! Rosales-Silva is a contemporary artist from Austin, TX whose paintings, photos, sculptures and drawings investigate themes of borders, diversity, and identity. Of his practice, Rosales-Silva says, “As a descendant of a Mexican mother and a Native American father it was interesting, shocking, enlightening, and sometimes heartbreaking to learn about my cultural history in varying forms.” In fact, amplified tales of cowboys and Indians, pop cultural stereotypes of Mexicans, oral family history and personal experience all funnel into Rosales-Silva’s work which he revises, alters, critiques and explores. Schedule your Art Truck visit today to see this amazing artist!
