Claudia Peña Salinas x THE CLUB: “Atlpan”
THE CLUB presents Atlpan, the first solo exhibition of Mexican born female multi-disciplinary artist Claudia Peña Salinas in Japan. Peña Salinas lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Her works are inspired by Mexican landscape, indigenous ideas, and mythology, and her works are in international museum collections including The Whitney Museum of American Art. For this exhibition, Peña Salinas has created new works during her stay at Nagano prefecture, Japan, starting with her research into the figure of the Aztec god Chalchiuhtlicue and taking inspiration from hikes around the mountains in search of natural objects for her sculptures, and from the Japanese folklore story The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter.
Opening reception: September 7 | 18:00–20:00
