April 22 – May 7, 2016
SCA Contemporary at the Sanitary Tortilla Factory is pleased to present the recent work of Julianne Aguilar. Yes To All is dedicated to Laancer, and to Vana’diel, the digital world she lives in. In the show, Laancer takes one last look at her world. Once-bustling cities and markets are quiet. The beaches are empty. Old friends have disappeared as though they never existed at all. Soon she will disappear, too. Digital avatars leave no traces: no footsteps, no voices, no ghosts. Who will remember Vana’diel when its servers are finally shut down? Some goodbyes are longer, and more difficult, than others.
Yes to All is the second in the 2016 series of Exceptional Visual Artist Scholar Series. The Exceptional Scholar Series offers professional space for the culminating exhibition that defines the student’s launch into their profession as an artist. The series hopes to underscore exceptional artists attending regional institutions while highlighting Albuquerque’s historic connection to contemporary art practice.
