Abstract: This is an image of the Opening Reception of Johana Moscoso's "Machera Floors" exhibition in the Clough-Hanson Gallery. Johana Moscoso’s "Machera Floors" are a series of large scale floor sculptures accompanied by process videos in which the artist and her peers dance Colombian cumbia and salsa over unfired porcelain tiles. The wet tiles, imprinted with impressions of the dancers’ heeled shoes, were fired, glazed, and re-assembled into large sculptural dance floors that archive dynamic expressions of the dancers' movements. The indelible impressions in "Machera Floors" embody the history of migration, which needs to be remembered and constantly retold in an America that tends to overlook the cultural assets and values created by immigrated populations. There was an Artist's talk held on September 5 at 6:00 in Blount Auditorium. The Opening reception was on September 6 from 5:00 - 7:00. The Exhibition was on view through October 12.
