Fort Worth Community Arts Center will Bernardo Vallarino, a Colombian-American mix media sculptor and installation artist. Vallarino will feature a new body of work titled “Simpatia sin Compasión” (Sympathy without Compassion).

Vallarino’s work explores geopolitical issues of violence and human suffering, as well as the rhetoric and uncompassionate behavior directed at displaced persons and refugees. “Simpatia sin Compasión” addresses human matters of justice, denial, indifference, and disassociation among human groups, particularly in relation to the world’s past and current refugee crisis.

The exhibition will provide an opportunity for a panel discussion and refugee testimonials. Additionally, the artist will donate 75 percent of the net revenue from any sales of this exhibition to Refugee Services of Texas, which is marking its 40th anniversary this year helping hundreds of refugees, asylees, survivors of human trafficking and related vulnerable populations from over thirty different countries of origin each year via service centers located in Amarillo, Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, and Houston.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through July 27.
