“It is easy to fall under the illusion that looking at art is a simple thing. However, the work in this show Espacio Liminal | Liminal Space is not about what are you looking at but what is it you see,”  says curator  Frank Lucero about the current exhibit now at the Museo de las Americas in west Denver. Lucero introduced the exhibit to a packed house last night at an opening reception at Museo. (See video)

The show features the works of: Jaime Carrejo, Frank T. Martinez, George Perez, Diego Rodriguez-Warner, Sierra Montoya Barela, Alejandra Abad and Jacob Gutierrez. In this exhibition, the artists and their creative vision represent a basis of exploration for the audience’s own Liminal Space, through which they develop a sense of their own experience and interpretation.

Lucero states, “Liminal Space is a transitional or transformative space. A waiting area between one point in time and space and the next. Just like how our cultures and communities are diverse and varied, so too is the beautiful, enchanting and creative history of art.”

Thankfully being Latino isn’t just a singular experience and in this exhibition you will see how these creative local artists are taking the knowledge and tradition of the past and its experiences and transforming our perceptions about cultural interpretations and identities into something that is new and original.”

In this multi-media exhibition visitors can expect to be enthralled by the depth and sincerity of each artist’s work. Espacio Liminal | Liminal Space is about the multifaceted experiences one can encounter through their own life-path and circumstances and how these experiences have the power to transform one’s self entirely.
