Southern California-based artist Xavier Cázares Cortéz will mount a sprawling solo exhibition at the Wignall Museum of Contemporary Art
SoCal-based Xavier Cázares Cortéz will create a frenetic feral installation of mixed media wall constructs, works on paper, sculptures and collections. “Something about…” is a mixed media installation comprised of transient structural arrangements, or feral landscapes as the artist calls them. Cortéz’s feral landscapes are born out of an examination of the styles and proliferation of texts--signs and signifiers—objects, words, acronyms, signs, and symbols from American visual culture at large. In his hands, they are deprived of sure and stable meaning.
Cortéz is hellbent intent on challenging the notions of the fixed object and aesthetics and ultimately in including the viewer in the discourse created by the work. Through intricate and obsessive collections of mass-produced ephemera and the incorporation of language onto his works, Cortéz creates visual poetry, inviting the viewer to make his or her own conclusions about the work.
Your support will assist the production and implementation of exhibition furniture and the creation of etched works to accompany the installation. Please help to make Xavier's vision for the exhibition become a reality!
