Trash is culture. When archaeologists excavate important sites, the trash of bygone civilizations, right alongside their ceremonial implements, teach us who these people were, what they valued and how they lived. In a riff on this concept, as well as themes of marginalization, redemption and transformation, “Los de Abajo” (literally “those from below”), a new exhibition curated by Andrei Renteria, finds artists John Atkins, Jason Martinez Gonzalez and Juan de Dios Mora using trash to create sublime and thought provoking works of art.
