At the FIU Photography Gallery at the Biscayne Bay Campus, Robert F. Figueroa (BFA ’14) is showing his work in Tom, Dick and Harry: the everyman series, starting Wednesday September 17th.
To describe the theme behind this exhibition, Figueroa presents the following questions:
Can we feel we know someone based solely on their online profile photographs?
Is it possible for an inanimate toy to provoke the same feelings?
Which one would best document how you would like to represent yourself?
Which one would you start a conversation with?
With whom do you identify with? Which one would you date?
The FIU Photography Gallery – and this exhibition – is directed by Eduardo del Valle and Mirta Gómez, Professors of Photography.
An Artist’s Discussion with Roberto F. Figueroa will take place on Monday, October 6th, 2014 at 5PM, at the Photography Gallery, FIU Biscayne Bay Campus: 3000 N.E. 145 Street, Academic II – Room 105, North Miami, Florida 33181.
