GEORGE RODRIGUEZ | EL ZODÍACO FAMILIAR
On the most reiteration of his Mexican Zodiac series, Sculptor George Rodriguez collaborated with 13 Mexican and Chicanx/Chicane artists; the resulting El Zodíaco Familiar, a touring exhibition, tells the stories of participating artists.
Each artist, of various artistic disciplines, responded to Rodriguez’s animal sculptures with the forms, tools, and aesthetics of their own artistic practices. Each artist imbued their collaboratively-imagined sculpture (corresponding to the zodiac animal of their birth year) with personal perspective, folk tradition, and an intimate feeling of celebration. While each sculpture is distinct, as a whole, the twelve pieces vibrate with deep resonances of the familiar; highlighting and embracing our similarities while applauding each unique voice and perspective.
