Central London’s Edel Assanti are set to present the debut UK solo exhibition from Puerto Rican artist Radames Juni Figueroa. Opening on June 12th, the site-specifically designed installation will be open until July 31st and is set to merge art, cocktails, concerts and live performances. All of these will be transmitted from a Tree House within the venue that’s constructed from materials inspired by the tropical rainforest and the streets of San Juan where Figueroa grew up.
The Tree House event space, built below the gallery’s skylight marks the natural successor to the artist’s 2014 installations in New York, displayed at the Whitney Biennial and The Sculpture Centre, which referenced a previously built Tree House in Naguabo, Puerto Rico.
More details are yet to follow, but for now more information about Edel Assanti can be found at www.edelassanti.com.
