No More Tears
Artist collective Las Nietas de Nonó presents three in-gallery performances in conjunction with their installation in the exhibition No Humans Involved.
Limited capacity. Visitors will be admitted on a first come, first served basis after checking in at the welcome desk in the museum’s Wilshire lobby.
The performance and installation No More Tears (2021) is based on Las Nietas de Nonó’s ongoing correspondence with their cousins the Salgado brothers, who were recently released after serving several years in federal prison. No More Tears is a meditation on the emotional and mental paradigm one grapples with during incarceration and how loss of physical and spatial freedom heightens the interior, invoking the realms of memory and dreams as a survival mechanism in order to maintain personhood and connection to the outside world. The piece also functions as a restorative space of healing and closure, marking the end of the Salgado brothers’ incarceration and brings attention to the violent history of offshoring inmates to private facilities within the United States, located thousands of miles away from the island.
