Puerto Rican artist Chemi Rosado-Seijo creates community-based interventions with strong ties to their site of origin. He creates multimedia projects that strive to bring daily life to contemporary art and propose alternative readings of political and social situations. Rosado-Seijo is a graduate of the Puerto Rico School of Visual Arts where he studied with Cuban artist Zilia Sánchez.
He has taken part in local and international events such as the Prague Biennial in 2005, the International Painting Biennial in Cuenca, Ecuador, in 2004, and the Whitney Biennial in New York in 2002. From 2002 to 2004 he did a residency at M&M Projects in San Juan, in 2005 at Art in General in New York, and in 2006 at Caribbean Contemporary Arts (CCA7) in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago.
Chemi Rosado-Seijo will be joined in conversation with Vesela Sretenović, senior curator of modern and contemporary art, and curator of Zilia Sánchez: Soy Isla (I Am an Island).
