Carlos Rigau: Magnetic Poetry

Feb. 10, 2012 - March 31, 2012

Opening reception Feb. 10, 2012, 6 p.m. - 9 p.m.

Dorsch Gallery is pleased to present Carlos Rigau's solo exhibition, Magnetic Poetry.

With his work, Carlos Rigau seeks to challenge traditional categories of art: sculpture, video, painting. While this challenge is not new (vanguard art has been doing this for a long time), the tenor of his transgressions is a reminder of the mystical possibilities of another kind of knowledge, which springs from Afro-Caribbean spiritual practices. The underground nature of these practices makes them analogous to other subcultures, and in Rigau's experience the most appropriate point of entry is the post-punk aesthetic.
