Northeastern Illinois University – El Centro Campus 3119 North Pulaski, Chicago Illinois 60641 (One block south of Belmont) Open to Public: March 11 through April 29, 2011.

Carlos Barberena is a Nicaraguan self-taught visual artist based in Chicago.

“Master Prints” series: In this series Barberena employs the process of appropriating master pieces of art, using at times both their titles and compositional strategies but inserting contemporary imagery to create new works.

“Años de Miedo”: This print portfolio is a homage to the victims of war, based on his memories and the collective historical memory of Barberena’s country (Nicaragua) in the decades of the 70’s and 80’s. But, at the same time, this does not mean that it is limited geographically, because it is the reality in many countries at present.

This Art Exhibit is Sponsored by: NEIU – El Centro Campus and the Art Department.
