COMING TO CMA: Raúl de Nieves’ ‘Fina’
Sat, 02/02/2019 to Sun, 04/28/2019

CMA at Transformer Station: Raúl de Nieves: Fina, the first solo museum exhibition by Raúl de Nieves (b. 1983, Michoacán, México), will feature new work in a site-specific installation developed for the Cleveland Museum of Art at the Transformer Station.

Narrative facets of the installation will be informed by de Nieves’s experience of Mexican cultural traditions, considered through the lens of this moment in history. These will unfold in relation to the particular architecture of the Transformer Station. As a whole, the installation will be characterized by the artist’s ongoing interest in transforming humble materials into spectacular objects that alter the spaces around them.

Mr. De Nieves, who lives in New York, traces his artistic practice back to his childhood in México: at school and alongside family members, he learned traditional Latin American sewing and beadwork that now permeate his art in multiple ways.

At the age of nine de Nieves immigrated to San Diego with his mother and two brothers. Later he moved to San Francisco and finally to New York, where his multimedia practice, including painting, sculpture, and performance, has taken shape.

De Nieves has presented solo projects and performances at The Kitchen and the Watermill Center, New York (both 2017), and the Institute of Contemporary Art, Philadelphia (2016). He has participated in major contemporary art surveys, including Documenta 14 (2018), the 2017 Whitney Biennial, and Greater New York at MoMA/PS1 (2015). His work is part of the Swiss Institute for Contemporary Art’s inaugural exhibition in its new building that opened in New York in summer 2018.

Transformer Station is located at 1460 West 29 St., Cleveland, OH 44113.
