Collidoscope: de la Torre Retro-Perspective

"Collidoscope: de la Torre Brothers Retro-Perspective" brings together a selection of works that are representative of the artistic and exploratory trajectory of Einar and Jamex de la Torre. Einar and Jamex were born in Guadalajara, Mexico, in 1963 and 1960, respectively, but they have navigated life on both sides of the boarder since they were very young. Due to their bi-national and bi-cultural background, their work has been interpreted through the lenses of boarder art and Chicano art for the past couple of decades. The brothers use an array of materials and techniques that range from the mastering of glass blowing to the more recent practice of lenticular printing, signalling to an interest in technology and popular mass-produced objects.
