show

Cinthya Santos-Briones

Artist talk: Saturday, June 9, 3:00 PM

Abuelas is a portrait series that honors the culture and experiences of Mexican immigrant women living in New York. Having come to the United States decades ago in search of opportunity for themselves and their families, these women are now the elders—the abuelas—in their communities. Although they are well established here, many have children and grandchildren living on both sides of the US-Mexico border and some must work unstable or exploitative low-wage jobs due to their immigration status. For these collaborative portraits, Cinthya Santos-Briones invites each sitter to choose where and how she would like to be photographed in her home in order to reflect each woman’s sense of self. The artist writes that "in these photographs, the homes´ decorations become part of the women's wider symbolic recreation of culture, memory, and ownership beyond borders.”
