Event Details

The Fed Galleries at KCAD are proud to present artist Esteban del Valle.  

Beginning with the premise of a painting as a stage, Esteban del Valle investigates the theatricality of leadership and its relationship to the performative nature of art and art making. With a strong connection to the conventions and clichés in both cinema and history painting, he examines various aspects of political speeches, campaign trail activities, revolutionary movements, and heroic narratives. Taking an interdisciplinary approach, Esteban’s work frequently creates parallel realities to explore the role of the artist in the pursuit of social justice.
