Guillermo Bert: The Journey
[Reno, NV] Los Angeles-based multi-media artist Guillermo Bert was born in Santiago, Chile. His artworks explore the endurance of immigrants who have left their home countries behind.
Rooted in his personal story, his primary focus has been the experiences of people and families who enter the United States along the U.S.–Mexico border.
Bert’s artworks draw metaphorical relationships between the journeys of migrants, harsh and empty desert landscapes, and the commodification and objectification of American values.
This exhibition includes artworks in a variety of traditional and contemporary media are drawn from the entirety of Guillermo Bert’s career, as well as new works produced exclusively for this exhibition.
“Guillermo Bert: The Journey” will be on view at the Nevada Museum of Art Aug. 26, 2023 — Feb. 4, 2024.
