'Frances Gallardo: Meteorology' Art Exhibition

The deceptive beauty of Frances Gallardo’s cut-paper hurricane series belies the urgent underlying theme of climate change, which is a particular threat for her native island of Puerto Rico in the Tropics. Gallardo’s work combines exquisitely crafted cut-paper installations with conceptual performance art. Delving beneath the surface, paper serves as a metaphor for human skin and vulnerability. Based on satellite imagery appropriated from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) website, Meteorology includes large-scale cut-paper installations and sculpture. The public opening on Saturday, January 18 will include a site-responsive performance by the artist. The exhibition was curated by Laura Roulet.
