Online exhibition by the Ely Center of Contemporary Art during Covid-19

"Amid the current health crisis, we are all left looking not only at our present, but ahead to our future - what do we do now? How is the current health crisis affecting you, and what does the future look like?    Novels such as Brave New World, Handmaid's Tale, Fahrenheit 451 and 1984 describe surreal and dystopian futures that now seem eerily all too real—so what is the new normal? What Now?

Humankind is resilient and mandated isolation results in creative adaptation and novel ways to connect. We want to amplify as many voices as possible during this time of solidarity and community.

Intersections, an immigration and identity themed art exhibit

September 5 through October 12, 2017 

Artists' reception
: Saturday, Sept. 23, from 4 to 5:30 p.m., in the Cummings Arts Center Galleries.

The Connecticut College Art Department will present the work of Corina S. Alvarezdelugo, Rafael Colón, Guido Garaycochea, Mohamad Hafez, Tedman David Martínez Onofre, Nadine Renazile, and Pierre Sylvain in “Intersections: A Benefit Exhibition for the Immigration Advocacy and Support Center.”

About my work in the show: "But KLG has also made plenty of room for abstract painters, whether it’s Blinn Jacobs’s color-blocked geometric pieces or Corina S. Alvarezdelugo’s half-abstract, half-concrete piece, Path to Freedom. Alvarezdelugo’s use of abstraction gets heavy fast; the image shows how the freedom in question remains formless, inchoate, while the sharp barriers to attaining it are all too clearly defined — and that’s part of the difficulty of the struggle."

About my work in the show: "On a divider wall by the gallery's street-facing windows, artists Corina S. Alvarezdelugo and Kate Henderson seem to be having an entire conversation in color, with Alvarezdelugo's Path to Freedom diptych and Henderson's Night Journey placed side by side. At first, both appear as a barrage of color, eye-catching from far away with details that emerge up close. 

Only when a viewer spends time with Alvarezdelugo's work do they see that her swirls of black, chrome, and bright color are in fact depicting barbed wire and a literal path to freedom that can cost a migrant their life. And indeed, the work comes from her series Remendando Mi Patria (Remember My Country), a series of encaustic works dedicated to her native Venezuela. In statements about the series, she has called the work part of her "path to healing."
