Root Division, with the support of Fondo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes, is thrilled to exhibit work by 15 Latino-based or born artists from Mexico, Costa Rica, Argentina, Colombia, Chile, Brazil, Peru, Croatia, and France.

A quality of "in-between," is one of the current circumstances that artists face when producing in new scenarios. Liminal Takes poses the questions of what is Latino art today and how are artists responding to globalized conditions of production. The work shows stimulating modes of production that oscillate between craftwork, mainstream, and other cultural ideas through installation, video, drawing, sewing, and other media.

This exhibition takes place in the Mission District of San Francisco, a liminal point between the US and Latin America. It proposes an approach to contemporary Latino art away from fixed folklorist associations and preconceived notions. Liminal Takes functions as a cultural thermometer for contemporary Latino art, not only for people immersed in the art scene, but for everyone living and working in-between.
