Curated by Julio Valdez
March 19–April 30, 2022
The drawings and prints in Taveras’ Heroinas series are inspired by women in fiction and poetry. Symbols in the work hint at their character—a snake, a map, a knife—while circles around their faces frame them as martyrs or heroines.
The works in this exhibition are curated by Julio Valdez as part of JVS Project Space. Based in East Harlem, JVS Project Space offers established and emerging artists opportunities to develop and present work to an audience of artists, collectors, curators, and art enthusiasts.
