This online exhibition is the result of a year-long Artist’s Residency in Silver City, New Mexico, sponsored by the Town of Silver City and Western New Mexico University.

​During his year of residency (2019-2020), the artist João Galera researched and produced work about Memory and Desire, using the poem The Waste Land, by T.S. Eliot, and the book Os Sertões, by Euclydes da Cunha, as a basis for his project. With all this in mind, João explores through his art the memory of the land and the people of Grant County. He has also worked with different groups of people in the county to create a Community Art Installation.

 ​The work in this virtual exhibition presents a portion of a show that had been planned for May at the WNMU McCray Gallery of Contemporary Art. João has recorded a lecture which will be available here on May 7.

The exhibit is currently on view here.
