Fractured Memories, Assembled Trauma presents new works by Miguel Aragón. Originally from Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, Aragón is an MFA graduate student at The University of Texas at Austin specializing in traditional, technological, and experimental printmaking. His current series explores images chronicling the drug cartel-related deaths from Mexican newspaper clippings. Using a conceptual framework of reduction, trauma, and erasure, Aragón parallels his artistic process with the experiences of those directly affected by the ongoing violence.
