Description


Pepón Osorio’s exhibition, Trials and Turbulence, features a full-scale recreation of a family court hearing room that incorporates a young woman’s real life experiences. Osorio, who chronicles survival within the urban community, constructs overpowering facsimiles of social spaces that function as art in a new context. His multimedia installations recreate the experience of social and political realities and provide an opportunity for reflection. In his new exhibition, Osorio weaves together documentary and transformed material to confront one of the most vulnerable intersections between private life and public policy – the foster care system.
