Born in El Salvador, Guadalupe Maravilla escaped his country’s civil war by fleeing to the United States alone at the age of eight. Decades later he was diagnosed with colon cancer. Those two experiences shaped the autobiographical Saga, the artist’s first solo show, which got great reviews when it opened in New York this September. Incorporating drawing, sculpture, and embroidery, the exhibit featured a shrine, playable musical instrument, and painted tortillas. His current show at ICA Miami sounds equally wild. He’s lecturing (at 1pm, unfortunately) about his practice, which “interrogates the parallels between pre-Columbian cultures and our border politics.”
