    February 10 - April 15, 2012


    william cordova: this one’s 4U (pa’ nosotros)

    For his first solo exhibition in Boston, William Cordova (b. 1971, Lima, Peru) brings together new and recent works in sculpture, installation, video and works on paper by the Miami/New York-based artist, unmasking and remixing seemingly disparate and repressed histories through thoughtful and subtle juxtapositions of familiar detritus.

    The Peruvian-born artist’s work imbues displaced historical narratives with new meaning, conflating previous events with contemporary context and creating rich monuments to individuals, events, and cultural and ritual signifiers. His materials reflect the temporality of the subjects themselves, using discarded pages from books, reclaimed wood and stones, newsprint, found footage and salvaged cars to conjure intimate connections between far-reaching chronological points.

    Curated by Evan J. Garza, Exhibitions & Public Programs Coordinator, School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and Editor-at-Large, New American Paintings.

    The Boston Center for the Arts and Garza have partnered with the deCordova Sculpture Park + Museum in Lincoln, MA where, for an entire year, the museum will exhibit William Cordova’s outdoor sculpture moby dick (for oscar wilde, oscar romero y oscar grant), 2008–2009, the bombed-out, spray-painted rear half of a reclaimed police car, a collaboration with Carlos Sandoval de Leon.
