DESCRIPTION

Los Angeles, California -Tropico de Nopal Gallery-Art Space presents DIBUJOS: EMERGENCY LANDING, a drawing group exhibition featuring up and coming and established artists, many who will exhibit for the first time at Tropico de Nopal.

As we get ready to face the changes implemented by the new administration and recover from the coma of the last eight years, it is becoming clearer that we could read the word "hope" as "fend for yourselves". Regardless of where one stands on the issues, whether optimistic or pay no heed, we must all brace for what's to come, an emergency landing of sorts, a reality check we did not sign up for.  DIBUJOS: EMERGENCY LANDING will showcase a strong series of drawings, dibujos, that can be viewed as personal, social, political—or all or the above—and also as drawings that will be recognized as having been produced in this unsettlingly and unfamiliar political moment.

DiBUJOS: EMERGENCY LANDING will consist of drawings created with a variety of traditional and non traditional drawing tools on various surfaces no larger than 20x24” in size.
