During the recent Material Art Fair in Mexico City, gallery artist Rodrigo Valenzuela spoke with Hyperallergic's Anna Furman about work from the series New Land and Sense of Place.
Join us at Fort Mason in San Francisco, February 23rd through 25th, for Photofairs as we present photo-based works by Oregon artist Ben Buswell. These new works further his exploration of tensions between image and object: Buswell experiments with ways to abstract, interrupt or erode photographic imagery to emphasize the physical characteristics of media, such as the emulsion layer's gloss. His imagery is typically grounded in geologic features laced with histories of ethical and political tensions.

Gallery director Melissa Soltesz traveled to Mexico City to present Rodrigo Valenzuela's newest works at Material. The fair's scaffolding brought to mind Rodrigo's 2015 Future Ruins installation at the Frye Art Museum, making it feel like a particularly appropriate venue for his work. Thank you to everyone who came out to this lively fair! Visit our Artsy page for other available works by Rodrigo Valenzuela.
Rodrigo Valenzuela will lecture at Portland Art Museum tonight at 6:00pm. The Museum debuted Valenzuela's latest video work in Labor Standards, which opened in October 2017 and remains on view through April 22, 2018.
