Assad x Wickham:
Quien Calla, Otorga |
Silence Means Conscent
For their next public exhibition, Galeria Militar in Todos Santos presents QUIEN CALLA, OTORGA / SILENCE MEANS CONSCENT, by artists Christa Assad and Kevin Wickham, both residents of Todos Santos. Assad a renowned ceramic artist and Wickham a concrete building expert brought their talents together to put paint on plywood. Painting within positive and negative spaces on wood grain, their uniqueness and inclusion of natural elements of the surrounding area has been a touchstone for a growing Todos Santos Art scene.
This exhibition, Quien Calla, Otorga celebrates women of México past and present. While some of those represented are controversial figures in history, all are undeniably powerful. This show is about celebrating these women, their stories and continuing to give them a voice.
“Feminine energy is breaking out around the world. Women are taking control as political leaders and active fighters in the military and rebel groups. Their strength inspires the next generation of young women to find their voices and use their minds for positive change.”
CHRISTA ASSAD and KEVIN WICKHAM
Christa Assad and Kevin Wickham are a dynamic artist-duo whose shared desire to sustain a healthy, outdoor-based lifestyle led them to the pueblo mágico of Todos Santos. The topography, climate and natural resources of this tropical desert location attracted the artists and suited Kevin’s architectural plans for a site with passive and sustainable design systems. The couple have dedicated their home, workshops and garden spaces to be experiential for visitors.
“We’re creating a sanctuary for learning in a cross-disciplinary, think tank context. In a sustainable ranch setting, participants exchange ideas, practice wellness, and work toward assimilating the built environment into the natural one.”
Taller de Terreno was founded in 2017.
Galeria Militar is activated by its artist and community and is located in the heart of the magico pueblo Todos Santa, B.S.C, Mexico.
