FRANCISCO MORENO – Las Noticias
Curbs & Stoops & Rhythmology have they first pop-up exhibition in New York – “Las Noticias,” (The news in Spanish), a solo exhibition by Mexican-American artist, Francisco Moreno. Curated by lovely art accesible missionary Jeffrey Pena (interview with artpjf).
In his paintings, murals and installations Moreno explores notions of American identity and iconography. He uses a graphic language of black and white camouflage as a metaphor for assimilation into foreign environments and foreign conditions. Throughout his work, Moreno considers the process of assimilation for immigrants as they contemplate immersion into American culture.
The artist shares, “I want to examine the images, reality, or sheer absurdity of what America considers news. A headline attempts to capture how we function in society now.” No catastrophy falls out of the realm of representation.
Opening Friday July 20, Avenue Westbury NY. For more info visit curbsandstoops.com.
