Before the Alarm, Three Stages, Folsom Lake College, Sayago & Pardon
Folsom Lake College, Three Stages and Sayago & Pardon have announced Before the Alarm, an exploration into ideas of dreamscapes and the subconscious. Before the Alarm will be on view at the Bank of America Gallery at Three Stages, Folsom Lake College until March 10th.
The exhibition aims to recreate the imagery that the subconscious develops according to the different states of sleep. Curated by Gregory Attaway, Pierre Fragoso, and Jasmine Magaña, of Sayago & Pardon, Before the Alarm shows a continuous narrative composed of pieces that act as representations of dreams that could be experienced during a night's sleep. When observed as a whole, the artworks imitate a dream cycle, starting slowly and peacefully and evolving into vivid dreamscapes that captivate and evoke dissonant emotions.
The exhibition will include works from Yoél Díaz Galvez (Cuba), Esterio Segura (Cuba), Roberto Matta (Chile), San Poggio (Argentina), and Moisés Barrios (Guatemala), among others. The exhibition explores the diversity of the Sayago & Pardon Latin American Art Collection and provides a different way of interpreting the artworks that range from realistic to fantastical to the surreal.
The Sayago & Pardon collection is comprised of modern and contemporary Latin American art with over 600 works representing nearly all countries of Latin America and more than 190 of their artists. Encompassing painting, drawing, photography, and sculpture, the collection provides a unique look at Latin American art through the eyes of the organization's founders. The collection is filled with dynamic works that highlight creativity through the juxtaposition of masters alongside emerging artists. From figurative works to the abstract, the Sayago & Pardon collection explores all genres of art to showcase the diversity of Latin America.
