curatorial statement: (WIP) Hecho a Mano
Continuing the great tradition of Latin and American printmaking, Radical Love Art Collective is curating a showcase of Dallas-Ft. Worth emerging, mid-career printmakers and artists. Hecho a Mano / Made by Hand crosses borders, tells un-told stories, professes its love of art, gente, and kinfolk alike.
The inspiration for Hecho a Mano and curation came about because Radical Love Collective, founder Angela Faz knew too few Q+POC+Latinx printmakers in Dallas-Ft. Worth. Seventeen artists answered the call to create a space that tells untold stories.
Hecho a Mano crosses borders geographically with local heroes from Austin, TX, New York, NY, Denver, CO and Puebla, Mexico. In addition to prints, we have included a select group of artists pushing the boundaries and amplifying their experience within installation and painting.
