Receptions: October 12 • 5–9pm + November 9 • 5–9pm

The exhibition takes its name from the phonetical transcription of the word "care." The term "care" is a shifting concept that variates its meaning in opposite directions according to where is placed in a sentence. The concept swings from burden and comfort as a concern, as well as the ability to feel that something matters, to be cherished. For Martin Heidegger (1889-1976) this concept was the epicenter of his philosophical system of thinking. He employed the word at an abstract, ontological level to illustrate the basic structure of the human being.

Considering this concept, curators Sergio de La Torre and Fernanda Partida Ochoa bring together the work of five Bay Area-based artists: Jose Joaquin Figueroa, Alexander Hernandez, Marcela Pardo Ariza, and Jessica Sabogal. The selection of artworks in the exhibition traverses different moments in each artist’s practice. Its common thread, what each artist cares for, emerges in a variety of disciplines. 

/ker/ at Art Works Downtown illustrates the abstract notion of "care" in its broad range of interpretation. That said, having a concept to start with, isn’t always such a bad idea. Because we do care, do you?

This exhibition and receptions are part of the larger project, Latinx, celebrating Latin culture and art. Latinxincludes additional exhibitions and events at Art Works Downtown and various venues in the San Rafael Culture and Arts District. Learn more at and
