Join us as we celebrate the opening of Gladys Triana: A Path to Enlightenment/Beyond Exile, on view in the Walsh Gallery from September 22-December 17, 2022. Light refreshments will be served in the lobby of the Quick Center for the Arts. Live Cuban-inspired, Latin jazz music will be provided by the Cocomama Trio (feat. Mayra Casales, Nicki Denner, and Jorge Bringas). The Walsh Gallery will also be open until 8 p.m.

About the exhibition: Gladys Triana is a Cuban-born, New-York-based, multi-disciplinary artist whose work rebels against authoritarian rule, domination, and power. She explores themes related to the historical struggle of women and the condition of exile, as well as subjects such as ephemerality, memory, and ultimately the search for a language of transcendence. Triana’s body of work encompasses large-scale sculpture, immersive installations, photography, and mixed media, as well as painting and drawing. Curated by Aluna Curatorial Collective, this long-overdue two-venue survey (at the Fairfield University Art Museum and the Art Museum at University of St. Joseph) spans work from the 1970s to the present. The work at Fairfield will focus on her early years in New York, and her sense of exile and feelings of isolation.
