Ron Abram: El Ambiente

November 17 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

November 17 – January 13, 2018

Reception: Friday, November 17, 5:30–8 pm

Ron Abram’s El Ambiente (The Environment), is an interdisciplinary show of printmaking, animation, and sculpture that brings into conversation folklore, history, popular culture and themes of personal and collective queer identity and place. The show builds on the themes the artist addressed in his Berlin show, Märchenbrunnen, a queer retelling of Brothers Grimm fairy tales, creating parallels with El Ambiente, a term that channels Andres Torres’ observation of Puerto Rico’s imagined communities,”[1] where queer and straight spaces meet.

Exploring real sites/locations as points of personal and collective meaning, Abram is an artist and curator who works with metaphor and symbolism. He is a master printmaker and Associate Professor of Art and Queer Studies at Denison University where he has taught since 1995.
