Migration Is the Theme of Multiartist Exhibit Opening at Bellas Artes

By Viridiana Gutiérrez Tejeda

The Bellas Artes cultural center opens its next set of art exhibits on February 1 with three artists.. The central theme uniting the exhibitions is migration.

From different critical approaches, each artist presents a unique vision of an issue of current global interest—migration.

In the exhibition De Pasada, artists Tania David and Salvador Tejeida present a video installation to tell the stories of the migrants who pass through our local communities on their way to the border. These stories are a form of tribute to the migrants’ courage and to show the viewer that they migrants are human beings wanting and deserving opportunities and, sometimes, redemption.

Tania David is a visual artist from New York City with roots in documentary photography. Her most recent work involves collage photography, painting, object art, and mixed media. In 1993, she moved to San Miguel de Allende.

Salvador Tejeida, born in San Miguel, studied art at the University of Guanajuato, focusing on visual art platforms such as video and installation.

Tijuana artist Enrique Chiu’s exhibition, Migrant Humanity, seeks to express a sense of the human condition and the reality on the US-Mexico border. Chiu is considered one of the outstanding young artists not only in the border area but internationally. This exhibition is made up of a series of paintings that express themselves with authority and a life of their own in each story they tell. Alongside the paintings is a photographic record of Chiu’s Mural of the Brotherhood, a key piece of the Migrant Humanity project. This exhibit contains messages of peace between nations, respect for humanity and the environment, as well as messages that promote values and contribute to social awareness about the border wall that divides Baja California, Mexico, and the US state of California
In her exhibition, Uprooted: Reflections on Migration, Uprooting, and Adaptability, artist Daniela Edburg integrates her photographic work, installation art, and object art, creating a laboratory where fiction and reality are mixed and connections are established between biology, geology, personal history, anthropology, and art.
Edburg is a Mexican artist born in Texas. She studied Visual Arts at the San Carlos Academy in México City. She is a member of the National System of Creators, with the support of FONCA (Sistema Nacional de Creadores). Her stories of displacement and adaptation here are not only about people but also about natural species that have a history of migration.
