Vida, Muerte, Justicia | Life, Death, Justice: Latin American & Latinx Art for the 21st Century

Make the time to experience this beautiful, thought-provoking exhibit hosted by the OCA Center, now through Nov. 27, featuring 24 Latin American and Latinx contemporary artists whose work responds to relevant themes in relation to social and racial justice. The exhibited artists offer local, national and international perspectives through multiple disciplines including painting, sculpture, photography, installation, performance, digital art and more. “Vida, Muerte, Justicia” is a collaboration between Ogden Contemporary Arts, Weber State University’s Mary Elizabeth Dee Shaw Gallery, curator Jorge Rojas and associate curator Maria del Mar González-González. “Latin American and Latino/Hispanic peoples make up the largest ethnic or racial minority in our country, as well as our local community, making this an especially significant exhibition for Utah and the art world at large,” OCA stated in a release. “These artists have played a significant role in calling out social injustice on local, national and international levels, creating relevant work that inspires action and change.”
