Desert Triangle Print Carpeta
The "Desert Triangle Print Carpeta" is a collaborative project born from the mind of self-proclaimed art agitator Karl "Krrrl" Whittaker, who wished to prove that artistic merit exists within the desert of the American Southwest. Krrrl traveled around the region known as the desert triangle, recruiting 29 other artists living and working in Tucson, Albuquerque and El Paso to collaborate on a print portfolio. These artists were given no other instructions but to print on a 22- x 30-inch paper and to avoid total abstraction. Through these works, the exhibition explores the following themes: gender and sexuality, religious and spiritual icons, personal narratives, social and political critique, and sense of place.
This exhibition was curated by Sophie Briley, the Edward and Nancy Strauss curatorial intern.
