Franco Mondini-Ruiz

3 July - 12 December 2004

Saturday, July 3, 6-8PM

In the North Gallery, Franco Mondini-Ruiz presents a new, large-scale installation titled “Giant.” This massive, baroque assemblage of found objects dominates the Ballroom’s front gallery floor, expanding Mondini-Ruiz’ signature vignettes of culturally-fused visual components. Investigating the hybridization of Mexican-American identity and the culture of consumerism, Mondini-Ruiz’ sculptural installation will further focus on issues surrounding border politics, racial and class interactions, and cultural tourism.
