Mel Rosas: Detalles, an Exhibition of Small-Scale Work Staff Pick

When: Fri., Aug. 14 2020
The N'Namdi Center for Contemporary Art will host an evening artist exhibition opening reception with artist Mel Rosas. Rosas's solo exhibition titled Detalles, an Exhibition of Small-Scale Work, focuses on quiet, personal moments of observational clarity by capturing a fleeting moment, a glance, or noticing a section of a larger context - i.e. a reflection in water, a figure's feet walking across cobblestone, or a section of a building's facade. Though these small paintings are more abstract than previous works, nevertheless, they are figures, remnants, and fragments from Latin American sociopolitical conditions. The means to an end may be best described in a recently discovered word from the Internet - ambedo: (n.) A kind of melancholic trance in which you become completely absorbed in vivid, sensory details.

OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, August 14 | 5:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. Online RSVP site closes one hour prior to the event RSVP at Eventbrite - Attendance limited. No walk-ups.
