About this Event
Join us on January 29, 2022 for a discussion between curator Diana Lada L’Henaff and artist Domenic Esposito as they explore the inspiration and themes behind Domenic’s first solo exhibition, , and his career at the intersection of art and social activism.
Vox Clamantis runs from January 7-30 at Piano Craft Gallery in Boston.
About the discussants:
Domenic Esposito is a Massachusetts-based artist and social activist. A graduate of Northeastern University, he was also trained in art from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Stonybrook Fine Arts, Artist Asylum, and Prospect Hill Forge, where he developed his metalwork skills. Considered a sculptor first, he continues to refine his craft with deliberate vocabulary borrowed from the Italian Renaissance period, as well as his own personal cultivation of Asian culture and principles. In 2018, he achieved national attention through the massive opioid spoon sculptures he placed on the doorsteps of the FDA and major pharmaceutical giants, and founded The Opioid Spoon Project, a 501(c)(3) to serve as a solution-based platform that seeks legal justice and brings voice to the devastation of opioid addiction.
Domenic’s work includes sculptures, paintings, commissions, and public art installations, and has been privately collected and exhibited in a range of galleries and art fairs across the U.S., including Canvas Fine Arts, Boston; Piano Craft Gallery, Boston; Insight Artspace, NY; Scope, NYC; Art Palm Beach; and SOFA Chicago Art Fair, among others. In 2019, his work Accountability won ‘Best in Show’ at the Arts Benicia Juried Show in California. He also completed a prestigious artist residency at Mana Contemporary, which lead to his print work with legendary Gary Lichtenstein. For more information, please visit here.
Diana Lada L’Henaff is an independent curator. She has spent the majority of her career as a museum professional and adjunct professor. A graduate of NYU, she holds an MA in Decorative Arts/Visual Culture Studies and a BS from SUNY, FIT.
