Open Late: Meet the Artist Richard Lou

Thursday, May 17  |  6:00-8:00pm  |  Mallory/Wurtzburger Galleries  

Opening Reception for IN LAK’ECH ALA K’IN, Tú eres mi otro yo, You are my other self

Free admission

With his exhibition “IN LAK’ECH ALA K’IN” Tú eres mi otro yo, You are my other self,' Memphis artist, educator, and activist Richard Lou transforms the Mallory/Wurtzburger Galleries into a work of art that centers on the idea that we as a human species respond best when we work together, create bridges, and seek common purpose. “IN LAK’ECH ALA K’IN,” Tú Eres Mi Otro Yo, You Are My Other Self' is a Mayan concept about community that gives voice to humanity's interdependence. From time to time, we all must be reminded of one of our larger goals: to make community. This exhibition explores that responsibility as well as ways that we may accomplish this important goal together.
