Roberto Lugo uses porcelain as his medium of choice, illuminating its aristocratic surface with imagery of poverty, inequality, and social and racial injustice. Lugo will be in conversation with Fabio J. Fernández as part of our The Artist’s Studio series regarding the trajectory of his artistic voice and practice in clay from his inspirational Emerging Artist lecture in 2015 at the National Council on Education for the Ceramic Arts conference to his recent receipt of the Rome Prize as well as a Pew Fellowship in 2019. 

Learn about all eight artist events in The Artist’s Studio series.
