NYFA EXHIBITION: “LA CRISALIDA” MAY 29 – OCTOBER 2
Curated by David C. Terry, May 29 Opening Reception
In partnership with Colectiva 21, NYFA Curatorial is proud to present La Crisalida, an exhibition highlighting artists from NYFA’s 2013
Guatemalan Boot Camp.
La Crisalida, or Chrysalis in English, refers to the stage of growth when a caterpillar turns into an butterfly or adult. The idea of this transformation, transition, or metamorphosis is symbolic to the changes that are occurring in the art world in Guatemala.
NYFA welcomes 23 Guatemalan artists to reflect on how these ideas of change or evolution are being manifested.
