The Tallest Part of the Arch

Southern Exposure

Artists: Susana Eslava Sáenz, Jamil Hellu, Humanizing Deportation, Javier Ocampo, Maria Paz, Purin Phanichphantk, Cristina Victor. With texts by: Ángel Rafael Concepción, Juliana Delgado Lopera, Jackie Valle, Jovanna Venegas. Through writing, photography, video, ceramics, and music, The Tallest Part of the Arch is an ode to the uppermost point of the social arch. The arch is molded by the subjects that are not pure but lavishly mixed, plurally hybrid, luxuriously aligned with one another--those who have migrated, hold multiple identities, assimilate strategically and forcefully. Those who are undefinable, whose own existence is an extension of solidarity.


This is what SF/Arts curator Christian L. Frock had to say about The Tallest Part of the Arch :

This group exhibition poetically considers the keystone, the final stone placed during the construction of an arch, as a metaphor for strength and social connectedness within stories of migration, assimilation and intersectional identities. Featuring new works by Susana Eslava Sáenz, Jamil Hellu, Humanizing Deportation, Javier Ocampo, Maria Paz, Purin Phanichphantk and Cristina Victor.
