Visual artist Orlando Caraballo is the McDonough Emerging Artist this fall. Join us for the artist reception form 4-7 with a gallery talk at 5pm.
His exhibition in the Judith Rae Solomon Gallery, titled Capicú, explores the effects love, death, grief, and time have had on his place in his family’s legacy. It reflects the complexities of his personal, familial, and cultural systems, peeling back the layers of generational progress and highlighting the power of choice, of
strategy and intention in the midst of hardship and generational baggage. Capicú, a term from the Puerto Rican game of dominos, is in essence a win-win: the mano (game)-ending product of team-based strategy and careful observation that leaves a single player with the ability to choose how they are going to claim victory.
Born and raised in Cleveland’s West Boulevard neighborhood, he earned a BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art with a major in Drawing and emphasis in Printmaking
