This event has ended.
Carlos Rolón (born in Chicago, Illinois, 1970) is known for his multi-disciplinary practice that employs craft, ritual, beauty, spirituality, and history, and explores how they work within the lexicon of the art world. He acknowledges the complex history that shapes the identity of immigrants and emigrants such as his parents and the many that came before them, reinventing them into images of beauty and rebirth with diverse materials that communicate
rich symbolism and offer opportunities for self-reflection.
The current exhibition will feature a new body of works in which Rolón continues these conversations with new mediums. Following the first introduction of his tile works and their acquisition by the Museo de Arte Ponce in Puerto Rico and the New Orleans Museum of Art, Rolón has expanded on the series, referencing multi-layered stories in his new tile pieces.
