Ferrin Contemporary presents IN DIALOGUE: Cristina Córdova & Kukuli Velarde. The two artists share several overlapping identities as Latina sculptors working in the figural tradition. Each explores subjects drawn from both their cultural histories and their roles as mothers, daughters and parents of young women documenting their own and their subjects’ generational changes. This exhibition opens simultaneously with MASS MoCA’s Ceramics in The Expanded Field, curated by Senior Curator Susan Cross. 

The newest works in the exhibition were produced in 2021 during the pandemic when each artist could focus deeply on major works, uninterrupted by travel; to-date, Velarde’s painting and Cordova’s sculpture may be some of these artists most important and large-scale works.
