Ruby Galleries Open House

Join us in celebrating the opening of the "Who Owns Poverty in Mexico?," and "QueerXscape" at the Rubenstein Arts Center!

"Who Owns Poverty in Mexico?" is an exhibition that 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. an exhibition that questions one's sense of economic reality.

QueerXscape is a room size installation with projection and collage, juxtaposing images of nature, contemporary urban landscape, and queer camp.

Be sure to check out the Art+Tech fair happening at the same time in the Rubenstein Arts Center!
