In Between: Painting the Post Immigrant Experience

Art & History Museums – Maitland

In Between: Painting the Post Immigrant Experience
runs October 8, 2022 – January 22, 2023 in the Maitland Art Center gallery

This exhibition features the work of three extraordinary painters, Cuban-born Leo Cordovi, Filipino-born MJ Torrecampo, and Syrian American Mär Martinez. The resulting three visual narratives of the post immigration experience all unite to form a picture of modern American identity. Through explorations of memory, resilience, family, and sanctuary, these artists are redefining themselves in a space between seemingly opposing cultural forces. This sense of evolving identity, like the brushstrokes of their paintings, is layered and reworked by time.

Opening reception is October 7, 6:30-9:00pm. Tickets available here >>
