Joel Hernandez Mexicanos

August 12, 2011 – September 24, 2011 Gracie R. Cavnar Gallery

Joel Hernandez’s work deals with his memories of Mexico and its people in a theatric way. Hernandez moved from Mexico when he was nine years old and grew up learning about Mexican culture through word of mouth or Spanish television. Hernandez recreates Mexican and Mexican-American culture and people in his work in a staged way in order to recreate his idea of what Mexico is and was.
