press release

Beneath The Surface brings together a selection of works from a generation of artists who are redefining post-war art movements. Through a variety of practices that include New Abstraction and Figurative Painting, these artists are responding to the consequences of globalization. For historical, sociological, and conceptual reasons, the works selected for this year's exhibition are subjective representations of our new American landscape. Through the use of process and appropriation the figure is once again re-introduced with an understanding of social media and technological newness, thereby blurring the boundaries between Abstraction and Figuration.

Visiting the collection, programming, lectures and access to the library are open to the public at no cost.

The de la Cruz Collection Contemporary Art Space is privately owned and solely funded by Rosa and Carlos de la Cruz. It is not a foundation and does not receive governmental assistance.
