In Post-Columbian Futurism, one of their largest and most ambitious projects to date and their first individual exhibition in San Diego, brothers Jamex and Einar De La Torre (b. 1960 & 1963, Guadalajara; live and work in San Diego/Baja California) transform the Institute of Contemporary Art San Diego’s Central campus into the site of an epic battle for the future of humankind. Through a fusion of Mexican, American, and Indigenous cultural iconographies, the De La Torre brothers engage with our seasonal theme, Limitless Growth, Limited World, by relaying a cautionary tale about the dangers of overconsumption in all its forms. Post-Columbian Futurism includes newly commissioned work, and will fill over 6,000 square feet of exhibition space.
