The solo exhibition, “Creole Albrook 2014-2015,” by Panamanian artist, Aristides Ureña Ramos, is currently open at the Contemporary Art Museum (MAC Panamá), through Friday, June 26.
Aristides Ureña Ramos has enjoyed a good deal of recognition abroad as a painter. He returns to Panama after living in Italy for 38 years, and the paintings exhibited in the show depict his reflections on his native country since his arrival after an extended time away. His work is full of symbolism and is focused on what he sees as the deteriorating social and political climate on the Isthmus.
The exhibition comprises 14 large-scale paintings accompanied by a video documentary in which the poet, Manuel Orestes Nieto, analyzes the significance of Ureña’s work.
Museum hours are Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The entry fee is $1.50 (children 6 – 18 years) – $5 (general admission). More information at MacPanama.org
