How I Lost My Accent: The Black and White Series

| August 31, 2011 | Calendar

In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15 - October 15), Cecilia Moreno-Yaghoubi unveils How I Lost My Accent: The Black and White Series - a pop-up exhibition about the Colombian artist’s repressed and unearthed memories. In addition to presenting new oil and mixed media paintings, a series of clotheslines mounted with dated worn dresses, pinned with weathered black and white photos and antique dolls, will transform the space into a virtual maze of the unconscious mind. Reconstructing and romanticizing the past with found objects and two-dimensional works, Moreno-Yaghoubi creates a tangible reflection of her memory for viewers. For more information please visit or call 917.295.0191.
