About the Exhibit & Artists
Four local artists of different ethnicities and backgrounds from the Dallas area come together to invite people to have an experience that is both individual and unique, yet shared and similar to every viewer. This is the metaphor we are using as the overall message of how our life experiences are separate and different, yet we still understand the lessons and meanings learned and can share them with one another. The plan to accomplish this is by creating a literal timeline from birth to death, allowing the viewer to navigate chronologically forward or backwards at their leisure for understanding. Each artist use their own style of art to portray an era of life that is vital to personal identity, and how they are interconnected with each other.

The word “Disciplined” befits our struggles during life and how much better we become because of them. It is the form of how life has structured us and how we have transformed ourselves, learning from each previous era of life that creates a solid understanding that is taken to the next. The artists each have their own individual experiences that they express with their pieces, which both relate to how they perceive life and connect to the other artists’ pieces as the narrative progresses. Raymond’s work depicts his childhood and the longing for the happier times he enjoyed watching cartoons and playing with friends in the housing complex he grew up in. Robert’s pieces represent the trials of growing into adulthood from adolescence, and finding one’s place in life despite all the chaos of societal expectations and norm. Daniel expresses in his pieces the point in life where one has some understanding of the desired path in life and what obstacles lie in the way of personal growth, such as politics and religion, as well as realizing the truths behind life’s veils and illusions. Azn’s work depicts his understanding of mortality and what lies after death, and reflects on all the experiences that lead up to that point that provide clarity for the questions in life; experiences that answer the “why” only after meditation. The use of black and white in these pieces represents the moments in our life that affect our perspectives, and the pink represents the significance of those moments and our connection through them.

This show is the unified vision that exemplifies the idea that despite all different experiences, people can come together to share their thoughts and perspectives and move forward together.

IDENTITY Artist Residency Program in Oak Cliff – deadline Feb. 15

identity residency

Artist Residency Program: Proposals due February 15, 2017

Preservation of one’s own culture does not require contempt or disrespect for other cultures.

 -Cesar Chavez

Sunset Art Studios and the Oak Cliff Cultural Center are now accepting proposals for Identity: I am one, I am many, a collaborative residency and exhibition program.

Sunset Art Studios, from artists Rachel Rushing and Emily Riggert, is a social practice studio in Elmwood run with the core principle of connecting people with the arts in an approachable way. This focus emphasizes the value of multiple viewpoints from diverse groups of individuals. The artistic process opens up the mind to creative problem solving, and seeing complex issues in fresh ways.

In our current political climate this mentality is vital to the survival of a civil and democratic society where all people are created equal and valued equally. The arts are manifestations of these values.

Inspired by the words of Cesar Chavez, Identity: I am one, I am many is a group exhibition exploring the ways we define ourselves and the world around us. Artists in Residence at Sunset Art Studios, and the SAS coordinating artists look at identity through the lens of culture, politics, gender, community, and more to forward discussions vital to our society.

Texas is a multicultural space home to veterans, students, immigrants, entrepreneurs, artists, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, and friends. Through this program artists are encouraged to apply whose work considers these complex identities.

Two artists will be selected for 4-week residencies at Sunset Art Studios during the months of March and April 2016. Residents will be provided with

  • Shared studio space

  • Limited studio furniture

  • Large exhibition wall

  • Connections with local community members, activists, and galleries.

  • Free WIFI

Work produced during each residency will be included in the May 2016 I am one, I am many exhibition at the Oak Cliff Cultural Center along with the work of the Sunset Art Studios coordinating artists.

 

Eligibility

Artists must be 21+ to participate in this program, and must be residents within Dallas city limits. Artists of color, LGBT+, and women applicants are encouraged to apply. Special consideration will be given to those whose proposal incorporate community activation, participatory making or viewing experiences, and/or social engagement with the local neighborhood.

Rachel Muldez: Quarks & Quasars at the OCCC

quarksquasars

Rachel Muldez presents
Quarks & Quasars

 

January 21 – Feburary 24
Opening Reception: Saturday, Jan. 21
5:30pm – 8:00pm

The Oak Cliff Cultural Center is proud to present the works of Rachel Muldez in Quarks & Quasars. Exhibition will run formJanuary 21, 2017 – Febraury 24, 2017 at 223 W Jefferson Blvd, Dallas, TX, 75208. Reception will take pace on Saturday, January 21st, from 5:30-8pm. Exhibtion and reception are FREE and OPEN to the public.

About the Exhibit:
Rachel Muldez believes evolution is all things taking part in the changing aesthetic of the created. The further the change, the more fantastical the outcome. Through her practice, like every physical action, comes a change in the physical aesthetic of what she sees around her. Being drawn to materials with the potential of life such as seeds, sprouts,cocoons, and nests causes her to ponder about other worlds. The objects Muldez collects end up in piles in her studio and await re-examination; taking days, months, or years for Muldez to become aware of their aesthetic potential.

The natural materials Muldez uses often look otherworldly. Objects made by beings other than humans, like nests and cocoons, further impress upon her a higher level of craftsmanship which she seeks to achieve. This constant reference back to nature in her work, is due to casual nature walks both in and out of urban settings.

Since 1992, Jose Vargas, the curator of the exhibition, has invited talented and diverse artists every year to create expressive and imaginative works of art that pay tribute to the “dark skinned Madonna.” The show has become a tradition in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and has been praised by the public for its original renditions of the iconic religious and cultural symbol.

The first collaborative project of the two curators involves an art exchange program that will allow art instructors form the border town to exhibit their works of art in Dallas. The program will also give Dallas Artists an opportunity to display their works in a similar, long-lived Virgen de Guadalupe exhibition in El Paso. The organizers of the exhibitions in Dallas and El Paso foresee that this will be the first of many future artistic collaborations.

Jose Vargas has curated this exhibition since 1992. Mr. Vargas is an experienced visual artist and exhibition curator who has collaborated with the Oak Cliff Cultural Center and other City of Dallas cultural centers on numerous occasions, offering curatorial, art administration, and art logistic services.
