Justice 1X

MEAM: Justice, 2017

Deconstructing Liberty presents a forthright, proactive perspective with a goal to, “question ideas traditionally associated with American liberty such as patriotism, community, citizenship, the pursuit of happiness, freedom, equal rights, and activism, as they resonate in forms of collective identity across the globe,” explains curator Marisa Caichiolo. As a further nod to the elusive pursuit of liberty by Latinos living in the U.S., work by Los Angeles artist Linda Vallejo's "Justice," a brown-skinned statue of liberty, is a voluptuous model, minus the crown, blindfolded, holding a spear in one hand and unbalanced scales in the other. Justice represents an in-your-face statement about the unfair condition many Latinos face in the U.S., whether they are long-time citizens or not.

DS 52 of US Latinos Experience Discrimination - 12 in

52% of US Latinos Experience Discrimination

Los Angeles critic and curator Shana Nys Dambrot writes, "'Datos Sagrados powerfully displays a universal, cyclical, divine kind of math, familiar to students of da Vinci, Michelangelo, crop circles, the Fibonacci Sequence, the Golden Mean, architectural schematics, Eastern mandalas; evoking styles of the Maya, Aztec, Native American, Islamic, Northern European, Asian, and Ottoman arts. Sacred geometry is the structure of the universe; beauty is a virtue before God. “It could not be more simple,” Vallejo says, 'but now we are having a conversation about everything'."

"In Vallejo's “Brown Dot Project” dark spots, whose quantities correspond to different Latino population and workforce demographics, are clearly disposed towards emphasizing Latinos’ societal contributions."
