Saúl Hernández-Vargas: Así como en el cielo / As it is in heaven

Tuesday, June 14, 2022

10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Saúl Hernández-Vargas’s work operates as an archive intervention in Nation-States’ official narratives; it is forensic poetry that invokes the specters haunting their margins, cracks, and fissures. Through a series of sculptures, Así como en el cielo / As it is in heaven—a special presentation at Blaffer Art Museum—explores the material making of the US-Mexico boundary (1849-1857), underscoring its discursive fragility.

Así como en el Cielo / As it is in heaven is organized and presented by the Blaffer Art Museum, and is supported by the UH School of Art and UH Department of Hispanic Studies.
