MichealAngelo Rodriguez’s Selected Poems, 2017-Present | Artist Talk, October 9, 2021

A selection of poems which explore concepts of identity and emotions, will be read by the artist. These poems, which were all written by the artist, are his daily musings and observations that he writes in a small, portable Moleskine notebook.

MichaelAngelo Rodriguez (b.1991 Meadowbrook, PA) is a 2018 BFA Fine Art Photography graduate from The Corcoran School of the Arts and Design at George Washington University. He received an A.A Degree from Tidewater Community College in Photography in 2016. His photography employs strategies of time and light to express retrospection and displacement prompted by the catalyst of familial geographic separation. In 2017 he was invited by Mel Chin to be a studio assistant intern during the preparation for his 2018 show All Over the Place at the Queens Museum, Queens, NY. He has participated in regional group shows in venues such as Push Gallery in Asheville, NC and The George Washington University’s Gallery 102. Formerly a resident of Norfolk, VA, he currently lives in DC.

This public program was hosted by Transformer via Zoom, and was presented as part of «Otro Tiempo,» MichaelAngelo Rodriguez’s first solo exhibition.

«Otro Tiempo» includes images from several series, all reflecting Rodriguez’s ongoing interest to capture the essence of a moment.

Rodriguez’s quiet, contemplative images document his lived experiences: heading home, commuting to work, or simply driving as a means of meditative escape. Regardless of the destination, Rodriguez embraces and relishes in the freedom of driving. «Otro Tiempo» reflects moments within these driving journeys that Rodriguez seeks to remember. In photographing an experience, he solidifies its memory and unique feeling.

«Otro Tiempo» is Transformer’s 18th Annual DC Artist Solo Exhibition, which continues our commitment to highlight the work of exceptional DC-based emerging artists.
