Exhibition Statement

Detour Gallery is pleased to present "Unprecedented", a solo exhibition featuring new paintings and sculptures by Julia Rivera. This exhibition is on view from October 27th until December 1st with an opening reception on Saturday, October 27th from 6 to 9:30pm.

 

Throughout the history of social movements and revolts, art has always reacted to oppression, violence, injustice, and inequality. Julia Rivera’s paintings and sculptures form a persuasive language to speak against oppression and persisting inequality regarding gender, race, or socioeconomic position.

 

"How can I be an artist and not reflect the times?" - Julia Rivera
