Nela Garzon Art Exhibition @ Institute of Hispanic Culture of Houston

About the exhibition

Made in China

Through three different artistic disciplines, such as fiber art, sculpture and painting, Nela Garzón questions the mercantile and disposable paradigm of objects in conflict with cultural identities.

“The body of work produced for this project inquires about the wide effects of consumerism and mass production and comments on the loss of cultural identity in the hands of globalization and industrialization. This global problem supported by us (consumers), besides devastating the environment, affects everyone but mostly minorities who have been maintaining the cultural heritage and diversity of the world alive.”
