Guillermo Bert: Groundwork

September 5, 2023 – January 7, 2024

Image of two sumo wrestlers wrestling overlapped with a collage of torn magazinesGuillermo Bert makes artworks that explore the endurance of immigrants who have left their home countries behind. In his multi-media and conceptually layered works, Bert addresses the ways in which colonization and capitalistic systems contribute to cultural displacement and the loss of Indigenous identities, traditions, and religions. Bert was born in 1959, raised in Santiago, Chile, and left his home country in the early 1980s before immigrating to Los Angeles in 1981.

A companion exhibition featuring Guillermo Bert’s work will be on view at Nevada Museum of Art from August 26, 2023 - January 14, 2024.

Artists throughout history have often used found objects, scraps, and even garbage, to tell stories in their work. This use of non-traditional media may have come from material necessity, or as a critique of traditional methodologies in art making. This display of works from the Lilley Museum of Art permanent collection traces the lineage from the Surrealists to contemporary art practices, where artists use collage in creative, political, and sometimes subversive ways. View this exhibition in the back section of the main floor exhibition space. 

The Lilley Co-Lab

A yellow, blue and red sign inside the arts building that reads The Lilley Co-LabThe Lilley Co-Lab is an audience-centered curatorial experiment where we encourage visitors to the Lilley Museum of Art to share their thoughts, feelings, and responses to our permanent collection. Shifting away from a traditional approach to installing a collection, this participatory exhibit allows for an open exchange of ideas that aims to enrich the museum experience for everyone. The goal is to learn from one another, revitalize the museum space, and share the Lilley Museum of Art’s collection in a new, expansive way.
