22nd Annual John and Katherine Covington Art Exhibition: Ivan Abreu

The 22nd Annual John and Katherine Covington Art Exhibition features work by Ivan Abreu, who has exhibited nationally in Mexico as well as internationally. His work addresses issues of surveillance, drug policy, national politics, border security and cooperation along the U.S.-Mexico border. This exhibition runs from October 1 until October 26.

The opening reception for the Covington Art Exhibition featuring Ivan Abreu was held on Tuesday, October 7 at 7:30 p.m. Student workshops with the artist took place October 8 and 9.

Using a broad range of media including drawing, photography, electronics, software development, sound experimentation and industrial design, Abreu explores the accuracy and capacity of science and technology in the context of art. His body of work produces unusual situations linked to physical, social and political phenomena, including-sound recordings of historic anthems, political speeches on ice, dead birds that continue to be suspended in air by magnetic levitation, and collaboration and balance dynamics at the border between Ciudad Juárez, Mexico and El Paso,Texas using an instrument or carpenter’s level.
