AmericaJR’s Jason Rzucidlo recently visited the new Cheech Marin Center for Chicano Art & Culture in Riverside, California. In this gallery, you’ll see photo of the special exhibit “Collidoscope: de la Torre Brothers Retro-Perspective.” The exhibition is a thematic retrospective on the artistic and exploratory trajectory of Einar and Jamex de la Torre, the two siblings that comprise this artistic duo known as The de la Torre Brothers. Einar and Jamex were born in Guadalajara, Mexico, in 1963 and 1960, respectively, but they have navigated life on both sides of the border since they were very young. Encompassing almost three decades of work, the exhibition also highlights the present and future of the brothers’ production. Many elements of the exhibition, including the title and curatorial framework, try to echo the creative process of the artists, serving as an allegory of their intellectual pursuits, their technical use of materials and media, and their own use of wordplay and poetic riddles in their work titles.
