Although you may not hear five languages being spoken within a single block radius in Nashville, you can find multiculturalism if you pay attention. Nashville Arts’ executive-editor Sara Lee Burd curates The Expatriate Archive at Mohsenin Gallery. The show features artists living in Nashville who hail from Central and South America, and judging by the lineup, it looks to be quite an eclectic mix. Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 18 for the opening at 6 p.m.
Burd has roots in Latin America; she was born in Columbia and moved to Georgia with her family soon after. From the press release, Burd says, “I hope this show leads to a broader conversation about cultural identity and what it is like to have homes in more than one country.”
The show will include works by Juan Pont Lezica (Argentina), Jorge Yances (Colombia), Jorge Mendoza (Bolivia), Liliana Velez (Colombia), Jairo Prado(Colombia), Yuri Figueroa (Mexico), and Clorinda Bell (Peru).
Mohsenin Gallery is located at 1917 Church St. in midtown. (Whoa! There’s a gallery in midtown?) The show runs through November 21.
