Often referencing revealing aspects of his own childhood, history, current events, and contemporary culture, FdlM's work delves into the fractures that take place in the family unit and the profound impact that sociopolitical and cultural shifts can have in altering their lives and impairing their relationship. Constructed from an inventory of drawings, journal pages, photographs and found ephemera, each composition invites the viewer into a space where artistic inquiry and documentation leads to self-discovery, understanding and finding common ground. The exhibition will include an installation of The Peace Boxes to raise funds for NYLAAT and a brief presentation of the book entitled Primogénito by FdlM
Peace boxes are being painted for the Governors Island solo exhibition in support of "New York Latin American Art Triennial - NYLAAT" Half of the proceeds from each box will go to the org.
The New York Latin American Art Triennial is dedicated to organizing exhibitions of contemporary art and cultural programming through which it seeks to promote and enrich our Latin American culture.
