Gallery Talk with Sara Mejia Kriendler: In Back of Beyond
Saturday, December 8 at 11:30am
Curator of the Exhibition: Casey Dalene - Registrar/Curatorial Assistant/Lewis B. Cullman Associate for Museum Education
Sara Mejia Kriendler’s solo exhibition in the Spiga Gallery was awarded in 2016 when she received the Top Honors Award in Guild Hall Museum’s 78th Annual Artist Members Exhibition. Kriendler’s work was chosen out of 424 artists by the guest awards judge Jia Jia Fei, Director of Digital at the Jewish Museum in New York.
Kriendler’s installation at Guild Hall will consist of all new works, variations on her current body of work, exhibited for the first time at the Museo de Arte de Pereira (The Museum of Fine Arts of Pereira) this past Spring. This body of work investigates her maternal Colombian roots inspired by pre-Columbian gold, the history of the Spanish conquest of the new world, and the legend of the el dorado.
