Frank Blazquez: Nothing to Lose | 9/18/21 – 3/13/22
Nothing to Lose by visual artist Frank Blazquez presents imagery illustrating life in New Mexico. In the wake of recent events highlighting the urgency to discuss discrimination in our society, Blazquez's photographic content emerges at an important point on the American timeline. A combination of documentary-style photography and mixed-media photomontage demonstrates the artist's role within communities of color.
Identifying as Mexican American, Frank Blazquez portrays his unique perspective on the marginalized narrative of the Southwest. Likewise, Nothing to Lose pays tribute to Blazquez's 2020 photo essay in The Guardian where he echoed the sentiments of New Mexican survivors of gun violence. The first major event following his show at Crystal Bridges' State of the Art 2020, the creator is proud to connect with the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center for this important exhibit.
