As part of artist Roberto Lugo’s solo exhibition at Independent Art Projects and Ferrin Contemporary he asked various artists, including photographer Bill Wright, to collaborate on different aspects of his current series, Ghetto Garniture. The series explores eclecticism and culture by juxtaposing street graffiti, European decorative patterning, and rich symbolism drawn from his Puerto Rican heritage. He creates a hybrid of visual art traditions and stimulates new conversations around cultural tolerance. Bill Wright’s contribution to the project includes two images that depict Lugo’s childhood with ceramics as a cultural signifier.
