About the Exhibition
While you’re at the Chandler Center for the Arts, check out Miguel Godoy’s exhibition, Abstracting Identity! As a Chicano kid growing up in a military family, Miguel Angel Godoy struggled to find a community as he moved from base to base. That changed when he was introduced to Hip-Hop culture and the breaking (breakdancing) cypher, where he found a community to connect to. Over time, Godoy’s interests evolved from breaking and graffiti to mural art, which led him to pursue an MFA in Painting and Drawing at ASU. As he navigated his MFA program and identity formation as a graduate student, his canvases morphed from square to round, emulating the circular breaking cypher where he felt most at home. Abstracting Identity at the Chandler Center for the Arts presents Godoy’s ongoing exploration of who he is and where he belongs.
