SOUTH HOLLAND, Ill. (October 29, 2020) – The South Suburban College Art & Design Department presents an exhibition by artist Javier Jasso entitled “Consecutive: Linear, Passenger” in the Dulgar Gallery through December 4, 2020, with a Virtual Reception on a date to be announced.

Javier Jasso is a Mexican American artist born in Chicago and raised in Mexico. He lives and works on the Southside of Chicago, Back of the Yards neighborhood. Javier says he is a metaphorical and literal builder. Many of the materials he uses come from recycled sources such as metal, plaster, plastic, concrete and wood that he collects from his neighborhood, along with ceramic, a medium and practice that he carries with him from his hometown of Alfareros in Guadalajara, Mexico.

Jasso explains: “Using my personal experience along with research, my current work addresses my perception of how humans respond to their surroundings as well as to the social and cultural issues relating to the natural inclination of searching and finding a place to call ‘home’.  I examine space in an ever-evolving concept in today’s global society. I transform the familiarity of a domestic space into a liminal one, where ‘home’ is both an idealized concept and physical reality, paradoxical poetical, and perhaps fictional.”

The public is welcome to visit the art exhibition and reception at no charge; masks and social distancing are required. The Dulgar Gallery is on the 1st Floor of SSC’s Main Campus. SSC Galleries are open Mondays: 8:30am – 12:30pm; Tuesdays: 12:30 – 4:30pm; Wednesdays: 8:30am – 12:30pm; Thursdays: 12:30 – 4:30pm and Fridays: 10:00am – 2:00pm. For more information, please call (708) 596-2000, ext. 2300, visit, or email [email protected]. SSC is located at 15800 South State Street, South Holland, Illinois.
