Yes to All
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.
