On Saturday, January 8th the opening reception for “Essays on Invisibility” was held at Hatch Art Gallery located in Hamtramck, Michigan. 

On the exhibit’s website, Paloma Nunez-Regueiro’s states, 

“In “Essays on Invisibility,” I am trying to interpret the effort of minority groups to remain, to take on opportunities offered by their surroundings, to become visible and therefore included in society.

The prints represent how invisible immigrants, BIPOC, LGBTQ, and anyone that doesn’t fit the established standards are. Legal or illegal, able or not able to make a comfortable living in this country, minority groups are somehow invisible, a lesser human. We are different, and most of the time people do not know how to approach us, which

gives way to uncomfortable experiences. Those experiences include microaggressions, physical aggression and violent crimes. These experiences are a constant reminder of how undervalued we are. When talking about immigrants, our assimilation process is a difficult one. We miss our homes, our families, and our culture. We are surprised by all that is different from what we expected.”

Nunez-Regueiro is an artist based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and also a resident artist at Ypsi Alloy Studios
