MFA Thesis Exhibition by Daniela Cavazos Madrigal

The opening reception at Terminal 136 for I Came From Wet is Thursday, May 4th, 2017 from 6:00pm-9:00pm. The gallery will be open for First Friday, May 5th, 2017 from 6:00pm-9:00pm. The exhibition will run from May 4 – 20th, 2017

Daniela Cavazos Madrigal’s thesis exhibition, I Came From Wet, examines the illusive notion of the American Dream, the truths, and dissolutions that immigrants face in its pursuit. Interested in the history and journey of the textiles she uses—clothing items from retail reject piles—Cavazos Madrigal transforms these highly labored materials by embroidering corrido lyrics and the testimonials of an undocumented immigrant friend.
