Changing Landscapes zooms into a diverse array of landscapes: some are literal and embedded with rich history and memories, while others are made out of the people that inhabit them, their resilience and everyday lives. 

Memory, history, and the passing of time are etched in the colorful and beautiful façade photographs of Peruvian-American Adela Hurtado, which are part of her series The Colors of Trujillo.  Her take on this project is deeply personal, Trujillo, Peru, is Hurtado’s parent’s hometown. The artist captures each building facade, before these ancient and historical structures disappear due to decay, natural disasters, the passing of time, or urban development.

This diverse group of artists featured in Changing Landscapes, connect to a greater community by reflecting the amplified effects of existing systemic racism, lack of access to health care, housing, food security and fair labor conditions due to quarantine and social distancing to slow down the spread of COVID-19.  The exhibition was originally scheduled to be hosted at the Revival Romanesque Row House Gallery however, due to social distancing measures was transitioned into an interactive online exhibition, maintaining En Foco’s commitment to representing artists, honoring the relationships fostered with local venues, and providing quality arts programming in these trying times.
