Opening Reception: Wednesday June 7th, 6-8pm

DVAA is excited to present a Casa de Duende organized exhibition for the month of June. Juror Henry Bermudez is a highly regarded Venezuelan born, (Philadelphia based artist) with an illustrious artistic career spanning over 35 years whose work has been placed in public and private collections throughout Latin America, Europe, Central and North America.

This juried open call asked Latin American artists to respond to a re-imagining of Latin America and what being Latin American means in the 21st Century. Artists were encouraged to mine the fantastic mythology both autochthonous and that which was assigned to the Latin American continent during its period of discovery, settlement, colonization, and beyond.
