Detour Gallery is pleased to present Unprecedented, a solo exhibition featuring new paintings and sculptures by Julia Rivera. This exhibition is on view from October 27 until December 1.
Throughout the history of social movements and revolts, art has always reacted to oppression, violence, injustice, and inequality. Julia Rivera’s paintings and sculptures form a persuasive language to speak against oppression and persisting inequality regarding gender, race, or socioeconomic position.

"How can I be an artist and not reflect the times?" - Julia Rivera
