Roof On Fire 

HOLLAND PROJECT GALLERY | APR. 01, 2021 – MAY. 07, 2021 |

Roof on Fire is a group exhibition curated by Daniel Alejandro Trejo, featuring works by Joshua Cruz Conanan, Leslie Foster, Aida Lizalde, Larissa De Jesús Negrón, Sam Pease, Anna Luisa Petrisko, Chris Rivas, Nick Shepard, Natalye Valentina, and Surge Witrön.

This exhibition is framed around impacts of the decline of physical gatherings and social situations, cultural establishments, and hallmarks of nightlife as a result of the protective measures mandated by government entities to prevent spread of the novel coronavirus. The disorienting effects of the health crisis that lead to a diminishing audience and magnified sociopolitical events caused overwhelming emotions affecting our wellbeing. The works presented in this exhibition are an emulation of the reactive tendencies that have been revealed due to the oscillating crises and politicization of our bodies. As a whole, we are experiencing collective vulnerability and tension within our contemporary personal lives and the concept of community.

Roof On Fire will be on view from Apr. 01, 2021 – May. 07, 2021, appointments can be made by contacting alberto@hollandreno.org or calling 775-448-6500.
