Marfa Dialogues

Rafa Esparza

August 25 2017 - February 2018

Rafa Esparza’s multivalent practice addresses and excavates the history of colonialism; labor and economic value scales; freedom, queer culture, and masculinity; as well as personal and familial legacy, among many other issues and subjects. He sets traditional materials, inherited processes, and ephemeral choreographies up against institutional structures and the historical narratives of Western sculpture, land art, and performance.
