Xavier Robles de Medina
Unearthing forgotten history through a meticulous and labored practice of examination and translation, Xavier Robles de Medina (B.F.A., animation, 2012; B.F.A., painting, 2012) documents the violent progress of capitalist industrialization that is rooted in colonization, European imperialism, and anti-Blackness. In 2015, he was nominated for the Prix de Rome Visual Arts and earned a place on the shortlist of the Royal Award for Modern Painting in 2016. His exhibition Wan Destination Wanhoop is on view at the SCAD Museum of Art through Aug. 9.
