Curated by Ever Velasquez

Charlie James Gallery presents Rostro, a group exhibition curated by LA artist Ever Velasquez. The show invites artists from the US, Mexico and Puerto Rico to an exhibition organized around myriad expressions of selfhood – be they from an individual or collective perspective, and the array of “faces” artists use to address their audiences.
