  • Description

    The School of Art + Art History at the University of Florida is proud to present visiting artist Ernesto Oroza on February 13, 2018, at 6 p.m. in Little Hall, Room 101 (LIT 101). The Spring 2018 Visiting Artists Lecture Series is free and open to the public. The lectures offer the community an important opportunity to engage in discussions about contemporary art and culture in relation to national and international trends.

    Ernesto Oroza explores what he calls the Architecture of Necessity -- how design is conducted by everyday citizens in response to individual needs and low-income scenarios. He looks at how people make customized and informal alterations to their living spaces and create new typologies for architecture and urbanism. He earned his degree from Havana’s Institute of Design. He is the founder and editor of Tabloids and Textos Moire. He has received a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Pernod Ricard Fellowship, a South Florida Cultural Consortium Fellowship, and a Harpo Foundation Grant.

    The Visiting Artist Lecture Series is sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, the Florida Council on Arts and Culture, School of Art + Art History, and the Graduate Student Organization of Photography.
