Our third Artist-in-Residence exhibition of the current season, Limitless Growth, Limited World, is opening soon, and we couldn’t be more thrilled!
Edra Soto: Graft, opening on March 4th, 2023 at ICA San Diego / North, brings an interactive poetic meditation on national identity, displacement, and belonging. This is a unique opportunity for the San Diego community to build a personal connection to Puerto Rico and our Artist-in-Residence. Visitors will interact physically with her work and witness her creative process firsthand during Meet the Artist Hours.
MEET THE ARTIST
In residence March 4 – 19 and April 29 – May 21.
During Meet the Artist hours, the public is invited to speak with Edra Soto and contribute to an upcoming project. While in residence at the ICA San Diego, Soto will be crafting a fabric and metal flag out of four-pointed aluminum stars. This project, an expanded version of Soto’s 2021 work, Tropicalamerica 21, taking inspiration from the all-black Puerto Rican flag, which has become a symbol of Puerto Rican independence, resistance to colonialism, and civil disobedience since 2016. Soto invites the community to join her in the construction of this flag and will teach visitors how to make the four-pointed aluminum stars.
