Nortesur / Luis Fitch - Opens Thursday, September 14 - Saturday, October 14, 2023
Exploring the intermingling socio-economic, geopolitics, climate change, and friction between Mexico and the United States.

The exhibit will showcase the work of International Artist and Graphic Designer, Luis Fitch as well as fine art prints designed and created at the Tamarind Institute, featuring works by Fitch as well as local artists Dora Chavarria, Julianna Kirwin, and Lena Kassicieh. The exhibit opens to the public on Thursday, September 14, with a reception from 5 - 7 p.m.

Luis Fitch's lifelong art exploration of the complex interrelationship between the United States and Mexico. With vibrant colors and bold graphic symbolism, Fitch delves into socio-economic disparities, geopolitical tensions, and the looming climate crisis that impacts Latino communities.

The exhibition traces Fitch's artistic evolution from his upbringing along the Tijuana-San Diego border to his status as an internationally renowned Mexican artist living in Minneapolis, Minnesota. His limited-edition jumbo size art prints capture the friction between developing and industrialized nations, portrayed through stark contrasts, vivid hues, and intricately Mexican contemporary motifs.

Nortesur takes its name from the Spanish words for "north" and "south," representing the bidirectional influence flow between two countries divided by an ever-shifting border. Fitch explores the spaces in between, where identities remain in flux, shaped by cross-border migration, economic integration, and shared environmental challenges.

This exhibition allows one to engage with one artist's unique cross-cultural reality. Fitch ultimately leaves it to the viewer to meditate on their position within the liminal spaces between nations, communities, and cultures—and to consider how we might navigate these hybrid identities to build a more just, equitable and sustainable world.
