About the Book
For his latest, and quite timely project, We Come In Peace (2011-2013), in conjunction with the 2nd SUR:biennial at Cerritos College, the artist Daino enters into a temporary zone of proximity with a colony of ants living in the dirt just outside his Riverside, California home. Rather than displace them into his studio space, Daino comes to them, into the environment that they have built for themselves; uninvited, for sure, but not necessarily unwelcome either … for he comes in peace.
The Cerritos College Art Gallery presents rotating exhibitions highlighting the work of emerging and mid-career artists. A special emphasis is placed on works that confront challenging and pressing issues in contemporary art and culture. In support of exhibitions, the Cerritos College Art Gallery also regularly hosts workshops, lectures, and performances.
