Join ArtTable DC, curator Laura Roulet and featured artist Barbara Liotta on a tour of an exhibition that connects two women sculptors from both sides of the Mexico-United States border in a collaborative installation.

The title is drawn from the poem “Dry Rain” by Mexican poet Pedro Serrano, which begins: “At times the poem is a collapse/ a slow and painful landslide/ a dark and scandalous rockfall.” Given the tenuous state of US-Mexico relations, this exhibition offers a healing gesture, recognizing the history that our cultures share. The central element is a gallery-length, collaborative sculpture, constructed entirely of locally-sourced stone with Perla Krauze’s black slate hugging the floor and Barbara Liotta’s jagged rock suspended in the air. Perla Krauze and Barbara Liotta are both inspired by minimalism and environmental art of the 1970s. The artists also are connected by their Eastern European Jewish heritage.  Krauze currently lives and works in Mexico City. Liotta lives and works in Washington, DC.

Tour includes the public rooms at the Mexican Cultural Institute.

Wine and snacks will be served.

Nearest Metro: Columbia Heights Metro Station. Street parking.
