reflect / project presents Soñar es luchar, a new work from artist Virginia Grise and features supplementary works by artists Victor I. Cazares and Joe Jimenez in her exhibition.
Soñar es luchar (Dreaming is Fighting) is a lucid dream about wild fires, urban rebellions, and the longing to fly, from a script originally commissioned by The Sol Project. Set in a cotton field in South Texas, it is a conversation between The Woman Who Dreams and The Girl Who Sleeps All Day. Produced by allgo and directed by Kendra Ware, Soñar es luchar was filmed on iPhones during the pandemic, and features performances by Marlene Beltran, Sharon Bridgforth, Omi Osun Joni L. Jones, Lydia Li, and Paula Alvarez-Espinosa.
Soñar es luchar (Dreaming is Fighting) will be projected in the storefront gallery at Mid-America Arts Alliance December 4 from 7:00–9:00 p.m. and occurring every day through January 8. The work will also be available for viewing online, with supplementary work from artists Joe Jimenez and Victor I. Cazares, selected by Grise.
