We are pleased to partner with Trinity University to present, This Is Only A Test, featuring Dallas-based artist Sara Cardona, at the Michael and Noemi Neidorff Art Gallery in the Dicke Art Building of Trinity University. For this exhibition, Cardona pushes her paper works beyond the 2D plane associated with collage, implementing various installation methods that highlight the connections between paper and textiles.
Using a material both personal and global, the works in the exhibition feature textiles regionally specific to Mexico and the Southwestern United States, pointing the viewer to the interwoven relationship of these nations and peoples. Additionally, the works in the exhibition are titled to create new wordplay, address miscommunication, and draw on the humor of idiomatic expressions to generate linguistic glitches and highlight social static across the region.
