NEW WORKS #17 includes work by artists Elva Salinas, Paccarik Orue, William Wilson, Tomiko Jones and An Rong Xu. Elva Salinas explores contemporary cultural dynamics surrounding the identities of Mexican- American women while Paccarik Orue documents the mining city of Cerro de Pasco, in the Peruvian Andes and the stories of its residents, their struggles, and environmental concerns. William R. Wilson photographs Indigenous peoples using the wet plate collodion process, allowing the subjects of his photographs to participate in the re- inscription of their customs and values in a way that leads to a more equal distribution of power in the cultural conversation. Tomiko Jones work reflects her concern with clean water resources and ecological stewardship of public land while An Rong Xu intimately explores the evolving identity of Chinese Americans and the transition from immigrant to American, unpacking the dissonance between assimilation and cultural heritage.
