Armando Rascon: Naco Nocturnes

July 9, 2006January 1, 2007

Armando Rascon is the final artist whose work will be displayed in the inaugural year of the new de Young’s Connections Gallery program. Exhibitions in this gallery emphasize the more intuitive connections on which artists typically rely and provide a model for visitors of the kinds of relationships that emerge when the collections are viewed with an eye toward common elements.

Working with the philosophical potential of installation art, Rascon uses museum and other personal artifacts as a platform to engage individual memories that redefine cultural perspectives. The visitor’s experience of museum artifacts will be reconfigured through video and soundscape, creating an awareness of how the US/Mexico border functions as a site of cultural definition rather than political division.
