Ramos, Rubi, Serra: Creative Fusion Alum Artist Talk

  • Cleveland Print Room (map)

Join us as we welcome back Creative Fusion Alumni Sandra Ramos, Pilar Rubi and Pablo Serra to the Cleveland Print Room.

During the Fall of 2014, Chilean artist, Pablo Serra spent three months in Cleveland, making many new friends during his stay. His culminating exhibition, You Will Find Luck When You Go Home featured multiple mediums. He will speak about his work and his new series, Ancien Regime which features pieces created from photographic source material of weapons that were handmade in prisons in Chile.

For Cuban artist Sandra Ramos, art can be leveraged as an act of resistance and a form or free expression in places where the state controls the press and access to information. Ramos said, "For me it has been important to my art to communicate those things that usually you cannot see in the official press or in the official information in Cuba." CPR hosted Ramos in Spring and Fall of 2017 and are excited to have her back to talk about her work.

Bolivian-born, Cuba-based photographer Pilar Rubi will visit Cleveland for the third time since her initial visit in Spring 2017. Rubi, whose stunning B&W photographs capture the essence of Cuban daily life has been focusing on wet plate collodion and instant photography as of late. Connecting with local photographers, Greg Martin and Matthew Beckwith to create images, we look forward to seeing Pilar’s new work.
