Celebrating the Jewish heritage of the exhibit’s featured artists Perla Krauze and Barbara Liotta, the evening will include dinner featuring a Mexican-Jewish menu and stories from the history of the Jewish Mexican community. Don’t miss your chance to attend this one of a kind event!

A site specific exhibit featuring the work of artists Perla Krauze and Barbara Liotta, A Dark and Scandalous Rockfall was organized by independent curator Laura Roulet. The title of the exhibit is drawn from the poem “Dry Rain” by Mexican poet Pedro Serrano, which begins: “At times the poem is a collapse/ a slow and painful landslide/ a dark and scandalous rockfall.” Given the current state of U.S.-Mexico relations, this exhibition presents a healing gesture, recognizing our shared history.
