Cara Romero

January 18 – August 10, 2025
Panûpünüwügai (Living Light)



Cara Romero: Panûpünüwügai (Living Light) explores the narrative artistic practice of Chemehuevi photographer Cara Romero. Spanning the past decade of her work, this exhibition presents a thematic examination of Romero’s complex and layered images, which celebrate the multiplicity, beauty, and resilience of Native American and Indigenous experiences. Accompanied by a catalogue of the same title and debuting at the Hood Museum in January 2025, this is Romero’s first major solo exhibition.
