Modesto Covarrubias, Liminal, 2010

Please join us on Thursday, June 10, 7-9pm for a conversation with Liminal Artist, Modesto Covarrubias

Reflecting his background in architecture, Modesto Covarrubias’ work is an investigation into the physical, psychological, and emotional connection to environments. He is interested in how a space can alter and be altered by one’s own mental state. He works in a broad range of media: photography, painting, installation, printmaking, and performance.

In April 2010, Covarrubias installed Liminal, an immersive site-specific installation created specifically for the ICA in direct reaction to the gallery’s architecture and siting.

Modesto recently completed his ICA Print Center residency – creating a print project that includes an edition of photopolymer and intaglio prints inspired and informed by Liminal. This exquisite series of prints will be on view in the gallery on Thursday evening.

A San Jose-native who lives and works in Berkeley, Covarrubias received an MFA in Studio Art from Mills College/2009 and a BFA in Photography from the San Francisco Art Institute. Covarrubias’ work has been exhibited throughout the Bay Area and internationally.

We hope you are able to join us for this fun and informative evening. Please feel free to bring a friend or two!
