Cog•nate Collective Reception & Artist Talk + Art Night Encinitas

As part of Art Night Encinitas, we are thrilled to host Cog•nate Collective’s new exhibition in San Diego!

Cog•nate Collective’s interdisciplinary practice holds space for more inclusive forms of community as they explore trans-border territories that expand and contract with the movement of people and objects. In an ongoing body of work, the artists investigate the cultural production, circulation, and consumption that takes place in street markets and swap meets like the ones they grew up visiting on weekends with their families in Southern California and Baja California.

These spaces of exchange foster social connection and sustain ties to home-lands near and far for immigrant neighborhoods and working-class communities of color. In Tianquiztli: Portraits of the Market as Portal, the artists inhabit the poetic space that links contemporary marketplaces along the border and pre-Columbian markets in Mexico.

The Artist Talk will be followed an Original Progressive House Set by local 16-year-old Producer/Artist Armaan Damani.

Join us for this special Opening Reception & Artist Talk to get a behind-the-scenes look at Cog•nate Collective’s work!

5:30 pm: Open doors
