Minerva Cuevas Opening Reception & Studio Series

We are proud to present our third Artist-in-Residence exhibition, from February 19th, 2022, to May 1st, 2022.

The residency exhibition, titled Dark Matter, will feature interdisciplinary artist Minerva Cuevas (b. 1975, Mexico City), marking her first solo exhibition in San Diego.

Combining three bodies of work, Cuevas dives into the history and future of petroleum’s omnipresence in the world. In her mural Fine Lands, originally created for the Dallas Museum of Art, Cuevas covers the gallery walls with oil, imagining a new environment that has been taken over by the extracted fossil fuel. Accompanying the mural will be new works created for ICA that involve the dipping of paintings into chapopote, a mix made from tar used for asphalt, vintage oil cans, and antique posters.

We invite you to join us for Minerva Cuevas’s Opening Reception & Studio Series!

5:30 pm: Reception featuring music by DJ Sam Sega
6:30 pm: Artist Talk followed by a Q&A
7:30 pm: Let’s continue the party!
