Homónimo - Alfredo LIBRE Gutiérrez & Jorge Moedano
Morgan's on Fulton - 952 West Fulton Market, Chicago
Tuesday, June 27th, 2017
6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Please join us in welcoming Alfredo LIBRE Gutiérrez and Jorge Moedano to Morgan's on Fulton on behalf of Beauty & Brawn Art Gallery and Sinergia Arts.
We are thrilled to be hosting these two very talented and versatile Mexican artists and muralists- both of whom currently reside in Mexico City. Homónimo will be their first collaborative exhibtion in Chicago to date. As long time studio partners and friends, Libre and Jorge have long worked together to jointly inspire and grow their skill. This is where the inspiration for this exhibition is derived... two individuals who have similar perspectives and origins but very different approaches and styles.
The evening will include drinks, an intimate discussion with the artists, live work, music and more. As always, the event is free and open to the public.
Free tickets are available here: www.homonimo.eventbrite.com
We will be collecting donations for Atea- a groundbreaking artists collective in Mexico City:
LIBRE will also be executing a 50 foot mural at the Western 1920 property in Bucktown while he is in Chicago, so stay tuned for updates on that. And be sure to stop by and support him!
Alfredo LIBRE Gutiérrez
Alfredo LIBRE Gutiérrez, born in Tijuana Mexico (1982), is an Architect and Artist. In his studio work he combines traditional techniques with alternate ones to create a body of work where order and chaos are palpable. He started his artistic career painting the streets and exhibiting in galleries in his local Tijuana as well as San Diego, CA. He then went on to paint in places like Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Cuba, Colombia, Paris, Frankfurt, Croatia, Hungary, Austria, Switzerland, London, Peru, Paraguay, New Zealand, Australia and Indonesia. Since 2003 he has given his time to facilitate community art workshops both individually and in partnership with different organizations such as the Institute of Culture In Baja California (ICBC), Mamutt Creatividad, the Mexican Government, Fundacion Hogares, Fundacion ORB, the German Embassy in Mexico City, PROSIGUE (Activity centre for young people at risk of homelessness), Reclusorio Oriente (Oriente Prison in Mexico city) and Casa Tochan (Shelter for central american migrants).
Jorge Moedano is a painter, muralist and sculptor from Mexico City who specializes in work on non-conventional surfaces. His fragmented painting style seeks to awaken the optical experience between time and space, making each work become an experiment open to consciousness.
