Loriel Beltrán leads a tour of his exhibition Constructed Color, sharing insights about his paintings and his creative process. The artist also delves into what it means for him to make paintings in Miami, an international city located at the crossroads of multiple modernist legacies of Latin America and post-war and contemporary painting in the United States and Europe.
Born in Caracas, Venezuela, in 1985, Loriel Beltrán moved at age fifteen to Miami. He earned his BFA from the New World School of the Arts at MDC. Beltrán’s work has been included in exhibitions at the Pérez Art Museum Miami; the Institute of Contemporary Art, Miami; the Museo de Arte Acarigua-Araure in Venezuela; and the Fabric Workshop and Museum in Philadelphia, and he has had solo exhibitions at Central Fine and the non-profit Locust Projects in Miami. Beltran was also a co-founder and co-director of the artist run gallery and collective Noguchi Breton (formerly GUCCIVUITTON). Loriel Beltrán: Constructed Color is the artist’s first solo museum exhibition since a small project at the Wolfsonian’s Bridge Tender’s House in 2007.
This program will be in-person. The event is free but advance registration is required.
