Juan Carlos Caballero-Perez of Henrietta, one of six artists selected for the 6th Rochester Biennial, speaks on his work. His talk is included in Gallery admission.
A native of Mexico City, Caballero-Perez trained at RIT’s School for American Crafts, where he is now an associate professor. He has exhibited in the US, Japan and Korea, and his public commissions include sculptures for the National Technical Institute for the Deaf and ArtWalk. At MAG, he was recently featured in Art Reflected: The Inspiration of 100 Years. “My work explores body ornamentation and sculptural jewelry,” says the artist, whose series for the Biennial includes jewelry that “celebrates the life and honors the death of my mother.”
The Biennial Artist Series is underwritten by the Sandra G. Dreyfuss Education Endowment Fund.
