The Pop-up is Jefrë’s first solo exhibition in the US West Coast and will take place from January 28 to March 6, 2022 at 8020 Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles CA. The LAAB will showcase Jefrë’s captivating larger than life multimedia sculptures and installations constructed at a human scale from his recent Points of Connection show at Orlando Museum of Art and his Pop-Up Exhibit at Mall of Millenia. Maquettes of monumental public works introduce the audience to the artist’s past projects, alongside a series of sculptures which exemplify his current studio practice.
Visitors will journey through the exhibition, guided by the stanzas of Jefrë’s poem Heart to Heart, as they interact with immersive installations, which explore the artist's immigrant identity, his history with heart disease and through the integration of technology, illuminate common humanity across age, gender, ethnicity, and nationality.
