Event Description October 1, 2011 – January 5, 2012 San Diego-based artist Becky Guttin will transform the OMA lobby with a playful installation inspired by memories of her childhood growing up in Mexico City. Working with Mexican cultural symbols such as mythical folk animals, tortillas and miniature houses, she investigates the meaning of home, family and identity. This new body of work also explores her interest in the contradictions of life, and the cultural conflict she struggles with every day. We Can Work It Out will feature colorful vinyl paintings of mythical animals mounted on the museum’s front windows, photographs of colored tortillas and a lyrical installation of miniature homes that meditate on the innate human need to construct a home and find belonging in community. Paired with a vibrant large-scale carpet, this installation will invite visitors to linger and contemplate the comforts unconsciously associated with home.
