SOLIDARITY

Images for Social Justice

Welcome! This Virtual Exhibition will be on view June 2021.

I believe that art can change the world. 

"Solidarity" is an ongoing project of works in response to the current socio political climate, including women's issues, race discrimination, immigration/displacement, gun violence, international conflicts, the environmental crisis and the impact of the Covid-19 Pandemic.

These works reflect universal values of love, justice, equality and peace, and aim to build bridges across borders, languages and cultures, and to generate a productive dialogue while honoring our common humanity.

The exhibition is organized in two parts, the first focusing on general social justice issues, the second on the impact of the Pandemic.

Selected works from the Solidarity series have been exhibited at the Grady Alexis Gallery, New York; the School of Visual Arts Gallery, NYC; ArtHaus, San Francisco; the Museu de Imprensa, Porto, Portugal; Arkana, Alcalá de Henares, Spain; Proloco Gallery Gallarate, Italy; San Antonio de los Baños Museum, Cuba; Turizm Akademisi, Anatolya, Turkey; Camara Municipal, Caldas da Rahina, Portugal and the National Museum of Bucovina, Romania.

My work has been published in The New Yorker, The New York Times, The International Herald Tribune, The Nation, The Manhattan Times, Viceversa, The New York Women’s Foundation (USA,) Map (Greece,) El Universal (Mexico,) and many other publications. 

"Solidarity" works have been recognized with various awards, including First Prize, United Nations Lurie International Award; the “Political Satire Award” Humor Biennial Cuba; the Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance Award, the Puffin Foundation Award, the Upper Manhattan Empowerment Zone Award, and the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council Award.

Special Thanks to all supporters, including editors, publishers, collectors and organizations, including the Northern Manhattan Arts Alliance, the Uptown Art Stroll, The Hispanic Federation, Google, LMCC, The Hispanic Society Museum, and the Morris-Jumel Mansion.

 

Thank for visiting! Additional exhibitions, publications and public art projects are in the works for 2021 and 2022, stay tuned!
