Harold Mendez: The Years Now
Opening: Friday, Jan 24, 6 – 8 pm
Friday, Jan 24 – Mar 8
Logan Center Exhibitions
Los Angeles–based artist Harold Mendez brings together objects, images, and sounds—all with their own multiple and layered histories—culled from sites across the Americas and spanning from pre-Columbian times to the present. Transformed and reconfigured into poetic assemblages, they evoke the body’s connections to histories of violence and erasure on the one hand and renewal and remembrance on the other.
