Josephine Sacabo’s photographs transfer the viewer into a world of constructed beauty. Built upon a foundation of poetry and literature, her many portfolios are visual manifestations of the written word. Sacabo divides her time between New Orleans and Mexico. Both locales inform her work – culminating in imagery that is as dreamlike, surreal, and romantic as the places that she calls home. On view through Jan. 8, 2012.
For over three decades, artists Josephine Sacabo and Ersy have shared inspirations and ideas through a friendship based on a mutual respect and joy in one another’s lives. In keeping with that spirit of friendship, inspiration and collaboration, two exhibitions – Ersy: Architect of Dreams and Sacabo’s Óyeme Con Los Ojos – share space in the Ogden Museum’s galleries, allowing the viewer to see the dialogue between these unique bodies of work.
