RECORDAR / ANHELAR
AESTHETICS OF UNDOCUMENTEDNESS

By Undoc+ Curator Erika Hirugami, MA. MAAB.
Dalton Gallery, Agnes Scott College, Decatur, GA

The artworks in this exhibition are a multiplicity of remembrances that together outline the embodiment of undocumentedness as a mediation of hope. In this exhibition the recollections of Jackie Amézquita, Yehimi Cambrón, Nube Cruz, David Cuatlacuatl Federico Cuatlacuatl, Jose Ibarra Rizo, Martha Osornio Ruiz, Isidro Pérez García, Elizabeth Pineda, Karla Rosas, Luis Alvaro Sahagun, Nicole Solis-Sison, and alejandro sosa converge interdependently to speak of memory, family, community, migration, spirituality, indigeneity, care, and futurity from an undocumented axis. Through the collective cacophony of visual depictions found within this exhibition, artists in the undoc+ spectrum confront their inner longing while honoring and affirming their cultural heritages. It is through collective recollections, testimonios, and recounting of oral traditions that this community thrives, is cared for, and stays safe. Here today, we remember and honor this memory and practice as integral to the undoc+ community.
