Vick Quezada

February 26 - April 7

Interdisciplinary Visual Artist
Cosmic Silicates

Researchers have discovered that silica (a component of dust and clay) – one of Earth’s most common substances – is formed when massive stars explode. Surrounded by the Chihuahuan Desert, El Paso, TX. is one of the leading sources of dust in Western Hemisphere.

Through artwork, found objects, “artifacts” and videos, Vick Quezada presents a unique perspective on citizenship and belonging. Born and raised in El Paso, TX. Vick Quezada grew up in a multicultural, bilingual, working class Mestizo family. In exploring colonial histories in the region, Quezada examines the hegemonic structures today that shape labor, class, race, gender, and sexual identity.
