Guerrero is featured in "Chamber Music," the newest exhibit at Seattle's Frye Art Museum.
Guerrero is one of 36 artists commissioned to create new work in response to
musical compositions based on James Joyce's volume of poetry of the same name.
Guerrero's piece La Bufadora (chica), for poem XXXV of James Joyce's
Chamber Music is an interpretation of the 35th, and penultimate, verse of
the Joyce collection. The watercolor places the viewer underneath the Pacific
Ocean, taking the sadness and yearning found in poem XXXV and the atmospheric
melancholy of the correlating song, performed by Australian psychedelic rock
The exhibition also includes a living library archiving
the artists' contributions as curators, critics, academics, theoreticians,
writers, civic organizers, and founders or members of important artist
cooperatives and independent exhibition spaces.
"Chamber Music" runs
from February 9 - May 5, 2013. The Frye Gallery is free and open to the
