No current Talk conversations about this book.
Proceso is the second of two catalogs representing Einar and Jamex de la Torre's exhibition, Fall of Empire, which was held at Cal State Fullerton's Main Art Gallery in the spring of 2005. Proceso features exciting images of the collaboration between Cal State Fullerton students and the artists, Fall of Empire exhibition installation photographs, as well as an interview with Einar and Jamex de la Torre and exhibition curator John Leighton, and also comments from the students on their experiences working with the de la Torre brothers.Fall of Empire was an exhibition in two parts: a sampling of the artists' artworks from the past ten years, and a site specific installation that provides a humorous and, at times, critical comment on the declined and declining empires âe" both historical and contemporary.To describe their own work, the de la Torre brothers have said, ""As Mexican-American bicultural artists, we are on the one hand influenced by the morbid humor of Mexican folk art, the absurd pageantry of Catholicism, and machismo; on the other hand, we are equally fascinated by the American culture of excess: its pornographic materialism, its blow-up doll aesthetic, and most of all, its lingering Puritanism.
