About The Event

Raúl de Nieves: Fina is the first solo museum presentation by Mexican American multimedia artist Raúl de Nieves. Through processes of accumulation, de Nieves transforms humble materials into spectacular objects and immersive narrative environments. Fina, the artist’s new site-specific installation at Transformer Station, draws inspiration from Mexican cultural traditions filtered through the lens of this moment in history. For this event, de Nieves will be in conversation with Cleveland-based artist Hector Castellanos-Lara (founder of Cleveland’s annual Day of the Dead celebration), moderated by Emily Liebert, CMA associate curator of contemporary art. Free; registration required.
