Harwood Art Center is pleased to announce our annual capstone program Bridge: Art & Social Justice featuring an exhibition by our very first artist in residence, Martín Wannam. He has been in his residency and in a Harwood studio since May 2021, working towards this exhibition. His exhibition La Furia en contra de la Máquina features collaborative and individual works by himself and artist Marlene Tafoya.

La Furia en contra de la Máquina or in English The Fury against the Machine is an exhibition featuring two visual artists in conversation. Marlene Tafoya and Martín Wannam present visual ideas through dynamic exploration of mediums utilized to individuality and collaboratively explore decolonizing gestures toward systematic structures. Their work proposes the reimagining, molding and subversion of objects as means of survival. With the use of the body and religious/cultural objects, they reevaluate the formal interpretation of icons, economic currency, images, nail materials, and monuments to challenge others to explore their own unperceived colonial biases.
