Salomon Huerta July 24














América Tropical
organized by Salomon Huerta

Artists: Patricia Valencia & Emmett Walsh

América Tropical brings together sculptures and video by Los Angeles-based artists Patricia Valencia and Emmett Walsh. Taking its title from the censored, but recently restored David Alfaro Siqueiros’ mural of 1932, overlooking Olvera Street in Downtown LA, América Tropical will draw out notations on appropriated cultural heritage, the slippage between nostalgic scenery and incendiary political protest, and the crumbling edifice of colonial architecture.
