Artist Q+A and Video Performance Evening, Thursday, July 10, 6-9pm
Las Vegas based artist Angel Delgado will present a new series of paintings and sculptures in a solo exhibition titled "Constancy". Inspired by the months Delgado was imprisoned in Cuba for a controversial performance art piece in 1990, the works examine the unique materials available to prisoners with limited access to supplies. The pieces include carved soap blocks, drawings on handkerchiefs and paintings. Delgado’s work is largely based on the limitations, restrictions, prohibitions and controls that are frequently imposed on human beings in society.
Delgado has shown his work internationally for over 15 years, including solo shows in Havana, Madrid, Mexico City, Puerto Vallarta, Istanbul, and Pittsburgh.
