Artists Penn Eastburn, Valery Estabrook, Hein Koh, Joiri Minaya, Kristianne Molina, Onel Naar, Esther Ruiz, Cristina Tufiño, and Woolpunk engage with softness and vulnerability in their work addressing contemporary social and political issues.

Curated by Alex Santana

The exhibition’s title, Morir Soñando, is borrowed from the popular Dominican beverage made of orange juice and milk. When combined with the acidity in the juice, and if not made at the proper temperature or mixed with a particular rhythm, the milk has the potential to curdle. A careful, soft choreography is necessary to infuse two unlikely ingredients in delicious harmony.

The delicate process of making morir soñando, and its resistance to easy preparation and consumption parallels the artists’ use of materials. Working across painting, sculpture, textiles, and video, each artist approaches difficult subject matters such as racial tensions, gender-based violence, neocolonial trauma, and environmental concerns, but do so in subtle, soft ways, employing care and attention to their engagement with materials. Together the works included articulate the potential of vulnerability as a tool for liberation.
