OPENING: Victor Payares at Roman Road

Friday 20 January, 6-9pm

Roman Road is pleased to present Esol Parcheesi, a solo exhibition by Cuban artist Victor Payares. Soon to complete his MFA in painting at the Royal College of Art in London, Payares explores ways of conveying and simulating memories through his artistic practice. Composed of three parts: a tiled roof, a 3.5 m antenna and a large-scale painting; Esol Parcheesi will feature a site-specific installation that narrates elements of a memory from the artist’s youth during the Cuban ‘Special Period’. The opening commences at 6pm on Friday 20 January and will be in the company of the artist.
