September brings another round of heavy hitters to the Bunker.

Marco Hernandez's Marco Hernandez current body of work explores issues associated with the societies and politics of contemporary Mexican and Mexican American cultures. Inspired by his personal experiences growing up as a Mexican immigrant in California and the Midwest, Mexican and Mexican American symbols play a large role in his work. The symbols span from ancient Mesoamerican imagery to contemporary popular culture items, such as the Valentina hot sauce.

The art of printmaking provides Hernandez with a flexibility of technique and process necessary for content development. Experimenting in the studio is as important as historical research in his search for content and ideas. The initial inspiration for this current work comes from several sources, including black and white photographs of the Mexican Revolution (1910-1920), Francisco Goyas Los Desastres de la Guerra (Disasters of War) etchings (1810-1820), and contemporary interpretations of Mexican folk legends.

Her work explores themes of transgender identity, materiality, alienation, and the body.
