Join List Center Assistant Curator, Selby Nimrod for a walk through of Carlos Reyes: 18.

This guided exhibition walkthrough will feature the works of Carlos Reyes’s first museum solo exhibition. Sculpture is a primary medium for the New York- and Puerto Rico-based artist, whose works are concerned with material investigations of infrastructure, architecture, and other designed objects that we encounter in our built environments. Reyes sculptures and installations are more than meets the eye as they are void of representation and made from familiar objects and materials, but upon closer consideration one will discover human activity as explicit references.
