Ronny Quevedo

    Exhibition: THE SOCRATES ANNUAL, 2017

    Equatorial Shifts, 2017

    Wood gym flooring, milk crates, enamel, steel pole, and gold leaf
    20 x 13 x 12 feet
    This installation mimics the space of an indoor basketball court with a hoop that references improvisational play and the decagonal structures found in the playing fields of ancient Mayan temples, and horizontal drawings suggestive of the Nazca Lines. By simultaneously employing and destabilizing visual vocabularies associated with games and architecture, Quevedo examines how displaced cultures shape the urban landscape of New York City.

    On September 7th, Socrates Director of Exhibitions Jess Wilcox spoke live with Ronny about his process and inspiration for his installation as he worked in our studio:
