Guadalupe in the Guest Room chronicles a funny and heartfelt story of shared grief and love between two people separated by a language barrier, ultimately proving that understanding doesn’t always require speaking the same language.  Guadalupe is living in the guest room of her son-in-law, Steve, while she works to translate from English to Spanish the children’s books her deceased daughter has written.

Ronny Quevedo there is no halftime

Ronny Quevedo: at the line

October 1, 2021 - December 5, 2021
Fine Arts Center, 30 W. Dale St.
Colorado Springs, CO 80903 United States

Working across printmaking, drawing, sculpture, and installation, Ronny Quevedo uses schematics—from dressmakers’ pattern sheets to architectural plans to geographical maps—in order to explore the formation of individual identity that is shaped by a fractured past. References to zoot suits are brought into conversation with Quechua culture, while Mesoamerican ballcourts are placed next to diagrams of soccer stadiums. Intentionally conflating time, space and languages, the artist maps relations between distinct histories, narratives, and visual forms.

Further complicating the situation is the ‘family business’: Albin and Georges run a drag nightclub in St. Tropez, where Albin is the “star” performer…
