Jonathan Christensen Caballero

The Baer Faxt sat down with Kansas-based artist Jonathan Christensen Caballero at his his exhibition La Gente/The People at the Belger Crane Yard Studios. He told us the story of his hard-working parents and how they are the inspiration behind his art which has a strong focus on labor, both in subject matter and materials. Jonathan weighs in on being part of his first museum exhibition. We also sit down with Jade Powers, assistant curator at the Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, to discuss The Regional, the first major multi-museum survey dedicated to contemporary artists based in the Midwest, which features Jonathan's work.
