Light Work AIR Oscar Palacio opened his solo show, Re-represented, at FP3 in Boston on January 23. The show, which features large-scale prints made during his residency, documents locations, such as Gettysburg National Military Park and Underground Railroad sites around Syracuse, that refer to race relations in America’s past.
Opening only three days after the historic inauguration of our first African American president, Oscar’s exhibition could not have been better timed as a poignant and powerful reminder of where we have come from as we enter a new era.
Having seen the prints as they rolled off the printer in the Darkrooms, it’s certain that Oscar’s decision to print these images large (some in the 40 x 60″ range) really adds to the solemn beauty of the sites. If you’re in the Boston area between now and April 25, 2009, a visit to this show promises a rich experience.
