Ricardo Vicente Jose Ruiz & Park Hyun Gi
Artist Talk and Reception - Thursday, October 25, 3 - 6pm
The exhibition Signals that Invoke 100 Years of Blue Milk currently on view in The Fine Arts Gallery features new works by Park Hyun Gi and Ricardo Vicente Jose Ruiz. Both artists use cultural folklore and the socio-political histories of their respective heritages, Korean/American and Mexican/Indigenous America, as primary sources for works that explore the complexities of their intersectional identities and the contemporary possibilities of faith healing traditions. Both artists maintain multidisciplinary practices that incorporate different modes of engagement such as performance based sculpture, writing, installation, drawing, etc. to develop personal mythos rooted in history and personal memoir.
