Jonathan Herrera Soto will create a new rendition of his installation In Between / Underneath (Entre / Por Debajo). The work will depict recently murdered and missing Mexican journalists, highlighting the record number of journalists killed. In exploring our relationship with complicated and often distant systems of state-sponsored violence, the exhibition invites audiences to interact with the faces representing the politically dispossessed—people who have disappeared, are incarcerated, or were executed.
Herrera Soto graduated with a BFA from Minneapolis College in Art and Design in 2017. He has exhibited at the Minnesota Museum of American Art, in St. Paul; the Duluth Art Institute; the Soap Factory, in Minneapolis; and the Annex Gallery, in Chicago. Herrera has participated in various residencies and fellowships including at Spudnik Press, the Highpoint Center for Printmaking, and the Vermont Studio Center. He is a recipient of the 2018 Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grant.
