Presa House will present a new solo exhibition by Laredo artist Gil Rocha, "The Things We Carry." A 360° virtual tour of the exhibition and individual works available for purchase can be viewed online at PresaHouse.com. The opening features a Facebook live performance by Austin-based trio Easy Compadre.

Rocha is a contemporary artist born and raised in Laredo, Texas. His art practice in and out of his studio encompasses a variety of techniques, including but not limited to assemblage, painting, drawing, sculpture, and installation. His work expresses the lexicon of the Mexican-American border and the many social/political issues that derive from it.

His current body of work takes on an inventive and survivalist approach with a Rascuache aesthetic. Many of his works include a combination of Spanglish text and phrases. Crude looking, yet playful, often his structures are made with a variety of discarded objects. They look familiar and portray narratives of things we carry physically and within.

The exhibition will remain on view by appointment through August 29.
