eduardo sarabia: this must be the place | 20 april 2023 - 27 august 2023

for his solo exhibition this must be the place, eduardo sarabia´'s multidisciplinary work is expressed in the setting of a home in which visitors are invited to walk through and witness the varied elements of the artist's practice – outsized, hand-painted blue and white talavera-style ceramics made in collaboration with cerámica suro; paintings that serve as metaphorical windows in the installation space; handmade ceramic kitchenware; and a site-specific mural of vine motifs, which are a signature of sarabia’s work– in a setting that welcomes gathering, conversation, and camaraderie.
