Room Gallery continues its Emerging Artist Series with Chilean artist Cristóbal Lehyt's installation piece Reduced to Insults.  This multi-media exhibition posits the concept of fatalism (or defeatism) as a strategic mode of resistance within the global geo-political sphere.  Employing drawing, video and sculpture, Lehyt's work combines political content with poetic aesthetics to comment specifically on the Southern California / Mexican border dialogue as an allegory for larger cultural issues pertaining to the "Global South."
