James Cohan is pleased to present Lo que hemos perdido / What we lost, an exhibition of new work by Teresa Margolles, on view from October 15 to November 12 at 52 Walker Street. This is the artist’s second solo exhibition at James Cohan. The gallery will host an opening reception on Saturday, October 15 from 6 - 8 PM.
In her ongoing investigation of the social and aesthetic dimensions of conflict, Teresa Margolles visualizes the enduring weight of violence. By infusing artwork with material traces of loss, she shares the stories of the disenfranchised in ways that are acutely visceral, confronting viewers physically and emotionally.
For this exhibition, Margolles will present a series of painted ceramic vessels from her continued collaboration with artisans in the Northern Mexican state of Chihuahua, near the U.S./Mexico border. Located in the region near the prehistoric Paquimé archaeological zone or Casas Grandes (the place of the big houses) the ceramicists have suffered greatly from the escalating violence in the area.
