Guerra de la Paz Installation
This spring, the graduate students of FSU’s studio art program will work with internationally recognized artists Guerra de la Paz.
Guerra de la Paz is the composite name that represents the creative team efforts of Cuban born artists Alain Guerra and Neraldo de la Paz who live and work in Miami and have been collaborating since 1996.
Their work is based on a combination of traditional disciplines and experimentation with dimension and the use of unconventional materials. It is inspired by an essential familiarity with the ready-made and the archaeological qualities that found objects possess. Encapsulating an energy that reveals underlying meanings and depicts the significance of mass-produced refuse on our society.
Graduate students will team up with the artists to create a large scale installation using second hand and recycled material which will be exhibited at 621 Gallery in Tallahassee’s Railroad Square.
The project is now underway as students start a major collection effort of materials needed. The installation will take place February 20th through the 23rd with an opening reception at 621 Gallery on Friday, February 24th The installation will be up through the month of March and on view for the public.
621 Gallery is located in Railroad Square Park at 621 Industrial Drive in Tallahassee.
Established as a non-profit organization in 1989, 621 Gallery is committed to bringing contemporary art, artists, ideas, and programs to the Tallahassee area as well as the North Florida and South Georgia regions.
