The Snite Museum of Art will feature the exhibition Torpor: Glasswork by Jaime Guerrero, an installation of hand-blown and sculpted glass by this California artist, beginning September 29, 2013. Guerrero will give a gallery talk that day at 3 p.m. during a public reception for fall exhibitions.
The artist chose the title, Torpor, in relation to the periodic hibernation pattern of various species that enable them to survive. Guerrero’s work explores the metaphor of this energy-saving inactivity and subsequent awakening to comment on culture, identity, economics, agriculture, and the artist’s craft in today’s society.
