Ari de la Mora & Richard Kent - Art Loteria - Artist in Residence Exhibition

Shadbolt Summer 2019 Artists in Residence, Ari de la Mora and Richard Kent facilitated a reimagining of a traditional Mexican game called La Loteria, often referred to as Mexican Bingo, which uses historic images as the games calling cards.  They selected 16 artists including themselves to re-interpret the images resulting in 26 unique 30"x36" artworks. These were made into cards creating a new version of the game: Art Loteria.

On November 2nd, 2019  el dia de los muertos (the day of the dead), Ari and Richard presented their residency project to the public. Opening with a performance by a 4 piece mariachi band, the public played the game, viewed the original paintings and had an opportunity to speak with the artists who created them.
