Opening Reception: Call and Response, When We Say... You Say

Sunday, January 27, 4:00 - 6:00 pm
Free and open to the public; free parking available in Pyramid Parking Structure
RSVP on Eventbrite or Facebook

Join us for the launch of an evolving project curated by Mario Ybarra Jr. and Karla Diaz, co-founders of the renowned Wilmington art collective Slanguage. With the UAM collection as their inspiration, Ybarra and Diaz examine how “high art" and pop culture intersect, as they address social inequities and different inter-generational aesthetic perceptions over the course of this group exhibition. The title reflects the playfulness at the heart of the Slanguage practice, taking cues from the volleying collaborative interaction between artist, art, and audience.


Critique and cooperation are key to this multi-phase project. Collaborations with visiting artists question the histories, assumptions, and biases of the museum acquisition processes. New themes, artwork, and participation arise out of this mediation, a negotiation that centers on shared values, common ground, creative agency, and artistic empowerment.
