Aspect/Ratio is pleased to present Love is a Rebellious Bird at our new home of 864 N Ashland located in Chicago’s West Town neighborhood. This exhibition of new work from Alejandro Figueredo Díaz-Perera will inaugurate our sixth year.
Central to the exhibition is Love is a Rebellious Bird, a new single channel video collage, containing edited clips of YouTube videos from his native Cuba interlaced with Afro-Caribbean and operatic scores. In contrast to this visually rich video collage, the exhibition will also introduce a new series of minimal monochromatic and layered paintings.
