Kendall College of Art and Design (KCAD) is celebrating the opening of Pulso | Art of the Americas, a unique collaborative exhibition with Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts (UICA), at a reception to be held on Wednesday, October 30 from 6-9 p.m.

Featuring the work of 28 national and international artists, Pulsois rooted in an exploration of the ways in which regional boundaries affect the perception of art. While the artists involved all have ties to Latin America, this collaborative exhibition frees itself from the confines of such labels by allowing the diversity of medium and subject matter to challenge cultural preconceptions of contemporary art and strengthen the dialogue among artists, both locally and globally.

“This group of artists challenges the clichéd perceptions of what art of the Americas is by exploring a wide range of media and themes,” said Salvador Jiménez, the KCAD Community Arts Advocate who served as guest curator for the exhibition. “We want to represent a diverse group of artists positioned within the broadest developments of contemporary art. Most are international exhibitors.”

Both the reception and the exhibition will span between KCAD, which will host work in the newly remodeled and expansive Fed Galleries, and UICA, which will utilize a variety of its versatile gallery spaces.
