Hilando Fino / Finespun

José Buenaventura González and Paulina Velázquez Solís

A dialogue between traditional and contemporary textile art 

Un diálogo entre obras de arte textil tradicional y contemporáneo 

One medium and two very different artists, both stemming from the deep, complex roots of Latin American culture. Hilando Fino / Finespun brings together the textile works of master weaver and organic dyer José Buenaventura González, an indigenous Zapotec artist from Oaxaca, Mexico, and Mexican-Costa Rican visual artist Paulina Velázquez Solís. Their work engages us in a conversation that explores the human relationship with nature and history, and the interplay of permanence and change in the lived experiences of the artists as individuals and as members of the larger indigenous and mestizo, Mexican and Central American, Latin American and American, globalized communities of which they are part.

Please join us for the opening reception from 5-8 PM, presented by the Latino Civic Association of Tompkins County and ¡Cultura! The exhibition is supported by the Latino Studies Program of Cornell University, and made possible in part by funds from the Tompkins County Tourism Program, and the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and administered by the Community Arts Partnership of Tompkins County.
