Rodrigo Valenzuela and The Print Center Philadelphia

The Print Center Philadelphia will host a solo exhibition of newly commissioned and recent two- and three-dimensional work by the Chilean-born, Los Angeles-based artist Rodrigo Valenzuela. Centered around his past experience as a construction day laborer, the works interrogate the literal and figurative foundations of our built environment by investigating its connections to democracy, identity, labor unions and immigration. For this exhibition, Valenzuela will create new, on-site sculptural works, in his signature plywood and other construction materials – and produce a new edition of prints at a Philadelphia-area printshop, that will expand his practice by introducing him to new printmaking processes.
