Daniel Aguilar Ruvalcaba

Mexico-City based artist Daniel Aguilar Ruvalcaba will be in-residence in the Ruby to transform the gallery into an interactive space that questions our motivations and seeks to change reality itself.

This exhibitions asks us, "Could contemporary México become a pioneer in the extreme eradication of poverty? As Mexicans, what can we do about this reality? Can contemporary art propose an alternative?" During his residency at Duke University, Daniel Aguilar Ruvalcaba seeks to create this site-specific installation, engage with Duke scholars, and participate in several special events.
