Jonathan Herrera Soto’s exhibition, “In Between/Underneath (Entremedio/Por Debajo),” is simply stunning. Housed at the Minneapolis Institute of Art’s MAEP Gallery, the show features the faces of missing and murdered journalists, temporarily etched into the floor. There’s also a wall of text-based print works and other objects. Together, the collection feels like a vigil, but also a call to action. For the last day of the show, Herrera Soto will give an all-day performance. He will work on cleaning the floors and erasing the remainder of the installation, much of which has been worn away already as visitors were allowed to step and walk on the etchings. The installation serves as a reminder that speaking truth to power is still a dangerous practice, and deserves all the support we can give to it.
