LO REAL MARAVILLOSO // THE MARVELOUS REAL

LO REAL MARAVILLOSO // THE MARVELOUS REAL
Jeremiah Barber & Ingrid Rojas Contreras

Curated by Sanaz Mazinani

Lo Real Maravilloso is a groundbreaking two-person exhibition by the husband-wife team, artist Jeremiah Barber and writer Ingrid Rojas Contreras. Bridging narrative storytelling with visual art, Rojas and Barber collaborate around themes present in both their works — the absence of the body, extrasensory occurrences in the everyday, memory displaced by time, and the nature of belief. Lo Real Maravilloso is an observational portrayal of fervent belief in dramatically different backgrounds — Rojas’ grandfather was a medicine man in Colombia and Barber’s father was a pastor in the American midwest. Through video, sculpture, and artist books this show features new works and highlights selections from their ten year collaboration.
