ANNOUNCEMENT: Most spring 2021 classes will once again be offered online/remotely. Learn more about the spring 2021 semester.
Please join the Arts and Communication Department on Wednesday, October 21 from 10am-12pm for a virtual visiting artist talk with Denver artist, Jaime Carrejo, via Zoom.
Jaime Carrejo is a multi-discipline artist and his projects involve painting, sculpture, video, and immersive installations that use layered materials such as rusting oxidation paint, colorful vinyl, and poured acrylic paint. Carrejo considers the layering of materials and imagery pivotal in exploring the collision of multi-hybrid identities and alterity that form complicated relationships.
He received his B.F.A from the University of Texas El Paso in 2001 and M.F.A. from the University of South Florida in 2007. His work is featured in periodicals, such as The New York Times, Art Forum, and Hyperallergic. Selected exhibitions include Mi Tierra: Contemporary Artists Explore Place, Denver Art Museum, Denver, CO (2017), Identity, University of the Andes, Bogotá, Colombia (2014), Art & Poetics, Mahmoud Darwish Museum, Ramallah, Palestine (2014), First Draft Biennial of the Americas, Denver, CO (2013), and Diptych America: Private Spaces/Public Places, Central Academy of Fine Arts, Beijing, China (2013). He also held a residency at Redline Denver from 2011-2013 and currently serves on Redline’s exhibition committee. Jaime is currently chair of Fine Arts and Foundations at Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design and is a featured artist in the Octopus Initiative by the Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver.
