The Desert Triangle Print Carpeta is a collaborative project born from the mind of self-proclaimed art agitator Karl “Krrrl” Whittaker, who wished to prove that artistic merit exists within the desert of the American Southwest.
Krrrl traveled around the region known as the desert triangle, recruiting 29 other artists living and working in Tucson, Albuquerque and El Paso to collaborate on a print portfolio. These artists were given no other instructions but to print on a 22- x 30-inch paper and to avoid total abstraction. Through these works, the exhibition explores the following themes: gender and sexuality, religious and spiritual icons, personal narratives, social and political critique, and sense of place.
The Desert Triangle Print Carpeta features prints by: Pavel Acevedo, Jesus “Cimi” Alvarado, Chris Bardey, Cristina Cardenas, Nani Chacon, Mark Christian, Michael Contreras, Francisco Delgado, Gonzalo Espinosa, Rudy Flores, Manuel Guerra, Jellyfish Colectivo, Krrrl, Los Dos, Joe Marshall, Raul Monarrez, Henry Morales, Lauren Moran, Ruben Urrea Moreno, Victor Muheddine, Tino Ortega, Zeke Peña, Matthew Poe, Martin Quintanilla, Tim Razo, Rezizte Colectivo, Tanya Rich, Rogo, Federico Villalba, Mykl Wells
This exhibition was curated by Sophie Briley (B.A. Art History, 23’), the Edward and Nancy Strauss curatorial intern.
