Beatriz Cortez: Cosmic Portals
February 5–April 2, 2022
Beatriz Cortez’s new body of work continues her exploration into Indigenous knowledges, multiple temporalities, and ancient forms of abstraction. A two-part installation, the exhibition features a large-scale indoor sculpture referencing an ancient Mayan observatory placed in dialogue with an outdoor work inspired by a mosaic built twenty-nine centuries ago by the ancient Olmec people. While one structure looks out toward the skies the other is directed towards the underworld.

Pau S. Pescador: Working explores the stories of trans individuals who work in the civil service sector in a time when legal protections have become contested ground and successive Presidential administrations have issued opposing orders on the rights of employees based on gender, gender expression, and sexual orientation.
