Artist Guillermo Bert in Conversation with Alma Ruiz at First Thursday
Guillermo Bert makes artworks that explore the endurance of immigrants who have left their home countries behind. Rooted in his personal story, his primary focus has been the experiences of people and families who enter the United States along the U.S. – Mexico border. The exhibition Guillermo Bert: The Journey presents a mid-career survey and includes artworks in a variety of traditional and contemporary media that are drawn from the entirety of Bert’s career, as well as new works produced exclusively for this exhibition.
Guillermo Bert joins us in conversation with independent curator, Alma Ruiz. Following the talk, guests are invited to visit the galleries and join the Museum’s monthly Members’ event, First Thursday. Enjoy live music, drinks and panoramic views in the Nightingale Sky Room as we celebrate the opening of Guillermo Bert: The Journey.
