Immersive Abstractions surveys almost ten years of work by El Paso-based artist Laura Turón, whose organic and geometric abstractions have included immersive installations, community-based collaborations, the deconstruction of drawings, and experiments in mark-making. Abstraction, Turón observes, can be a way of welcoming viewers into a sense of belonging, rather than an exclusive visual vocabulary. The first in the Genius Loci exhibition series supported by a generous Mellon Foundation grant, Immersive Abstractions looks at the ways in which our local context informs artists’ practices.
