On the occasion of Edra Soto's NADA House presentation with Morgan Lehman gallery, the artist and NADA have produced a limited-edition t-shirt.
The design of the t-shirt directly relates to her series of limited edition digital prints titled Casas-Islas | Houses-Island, conceptual drawings inspired by Puerto Rico’s built environment. Casas-Islas | Houses-Island specifically considers the idiosyncratic architecture and designs of lower and middle class homes, redeploying those elements into graphic, 2-dimensional schematics. In this sense, the work becomes a reflection on states of isolation and the idea of homes as topographical spaces that contain private histories.
Edra Soto is a Puerto-Rican born artist, curator, educator, and co-director of the outdoor project space, The Franklin. Soto has exhibited extensively at venues including El Museo del Barrio, NY; Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art's satellite, The Momentary, AK; Albright-Knox Northland, NY; Museum of Contemporary Art of Chicago, IL; Smart Museum, IL and the Abrons Arts Center, NY. Recently, Soto completed a large-scale public art commission titled “Screenhouse”, currently on view at Millennium Park in Chicago. Soto holds an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a bachelor’s degree from Escuela de Artes Plásticas y Diseño de Puerto Rico. The artist lives and works in Chicago.
