FRIDAY 20 JANUARY
Preview: VICTOR PAYARES ‘Esol Parcheesi’
6:00 PM – 9:00 PM @ Roman Road, 69 Roman Road, London, E2 0QN
For his first solo exhibition at Roman Road, Cuban artist Victor Payares, who is soon to complete an MFA at the Royal College of Art in London, has been commissioned to create a site-specific installation that expands on his new investigation of exploring ways of simulating memories through his artistic practice. The show entitled Esol Parcheesi, which is in ode to ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) courses, an educational programme that he was enrolled in throughout high school, presents an immersive installation that narrates elements of a memory from the artist’s childhood during the Cuban ‘Special Period’.
