About the Exhibition

Jaime Carrejo: Waiting presents a new installation by the Denver-based artist that explores the relationship between confinement and duration. Through a layering of Southwestern symbolism, mid-century design, and objects from his own domestic space, Carrejo offers an environment reminiscent of an interior waiting room and exterior courtyard. These settings intend to prompt reflection on various physical and psychological barriers experienced during the pandemic but also pose the question of what will come after this extended period of waiting.

Artist Jaime Carrejo and Maurice Ka (Collaborative Partner at Denver's Rosehouse Botanicals) explore relationships to the plants that share our domestic spaces and the symbolism embedded within them, beginning with a deep look at Jaime's exhibition and continuing with a conversation on self-care, houseplants, and the comforts of gardening.
