Audre Lorde, self-described as “black, lesbian, mother, warrior, poet,” defined the term Biomythography, in her seminal piece Zami: A New Spelling of My Name as “combining elements of history, biography and myth”. The exhibition Biomythography: Currency Exchange is the third in a series of exhibitions curated by Chris Christion and Jessica Wimbley that seek to investigate biomythography as an interdisciplinary visual arts practice.
In it's second iteration, Biomythography: Currency Exchange examines multiple forms of currency, in particular, cultural currency and the ways in which they are encoded and decoded in our contemporary culture. Artists in the exhibition engage in mutli-media practices as a means of revealing and navigating cultural currency.
Placing emerging contemporary artists from Costa Rica and Southern California in context and dialogue under the framework of Biomythography, Currency Exchange provides a platform for emerging international and local artists to be in conversation-exchanging ideas, perspectives and meanings.
Artists Include: Guillermo Bert, Audrey Chan, Christian Salablanca Diaz, Chuck Feesago, Mimian Hsu, Elisa Bergel Melo, Kimberly Morris, Albert Lopez Jr., Marton Robinson, Javier Estaban Calvo Sandi, and Glen Wilson.
