Sandy Rodriguez: To Translate the Unfathomable will be on view from January 17 – April 7, 2023, in the Mary H. Dana Women Artists Series Galleries, Douglass Library. Rodriguez’s recent work consists of maps, botanical studies, and figural compositions painted in hand processed watercolors on amate paper with techniques, forms, and pigments of Mesoamerican manuscripts produced by the Mexica people and other Mexican natives in the first century after the Conquest of Mexico (1519-21).
The exhibition is curated by Tatiana Flores, Director, Center for Women in the Arts and Humanities and Professor of Art History and Latino & Caribbean Studies, and advised by Camilla Townsend, Distinguished Professor of History and Director of the Rutgers Working Group of Hemispheric Indigenous Studies. The exhibition will be the artist’s first solo show on the East Coast. It will be accompanied by an online catalogue with an essay by Townsend.
The Exhibition will be open:
