Artist Talk: Angel Otero
From the event description:
Puerto Rican-born, New York-based artist Angel Otero speaks about his newest commission: the 2019-2020 site-specific installation in the Kemper Museum atrium. Angel Otero is a visual artist best known for his process-based paintings. While much of his works have been influenced by memories based in photographs and other family memorabilia combined with the gestures of 20th century painting, his latest works highlight his unique process as a form of narrative in itself.
