Emilio Chapela: 512 Drinks

February 21 – August 22, 2016


Emilio Chapela (b. 1978, Mexico) is a conceptual artist with a background in mathematics and communication. His work often addresses themes of classification, networks, and translation. 512 Drinks features close-up photos of various hued beverages, arranged in a grid. The installation opens a dialogue on consumerism, as well as the relationship between photography and painting.
