Join us at the ASU Art Museum for a talk by visiting artist Eduardo Sarabia, whose work is part of the exhibition Turn off the Sun: Selections from la Colección Jumex.
Born in Los Angeles in 1976, Eduardo Sarabia obtained a BFA from Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles, and now lives and works in Los Angeles, Guadalajara and Berlin.
Sarabia is known for creating fake evidence for semi-fictional events, using performance, drawing, painting, ceramics, photographs and sculpture to document events and ideas. His Latino heritage is an influence in his work, with its cultural symbols appearing throughout. Recently, Sarabia has taken part in numerous international group shows including I Love New York, I-20 Gallery, New York, 2001; the 51st Venice Biennale, Venice, Italy, 2005; Musee des Beaux-Arts, Lille, France, 2006 and the Whitney Biennial, Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, 2008. Recent solo exhibitions include Santa Monica Museum of Art, Santa Monica, Calif., 2002; Museo Raúl Anguiano, Guadalajara, Mexico, 2008; LA Louver, Los Angeles, 2008. Upcoming exhibitions include the Denver Contemporary Art Museum in 2013.
