1805 Gallery is pleased to announce Robert Andrade as the fifth resident artist this season. Robert Andrade’s abstract, conceptual works explore the politics of modern architecture that are strategically designed to influence our movements and experiences. Andrade works within a range of familiar construction materials including concrete, aluminum, plexiglass and steel. With over fifty percent of the world’s population living in urban areas, Andrade critically engages urban architectural materials that we encounter daily. 

Robert Andrade will be working in the gallery from Friday, July 14, through Friday, September 8, 2017. While in residence, Andrade will produce a series of drawings, sculptures and sound works that examine the artificiality of materials that shape our modern urban landscape, specifically focusing on analyzing formal gardens designed to manipulate social interactions and individual contemplation. 

1805 Gallery is an art studio and exhibition space in San Diego, California. The gallery operates an artist residency program featuring emerging artists that focus on process and development within their practice.  1805 Gallery aims to support the creative community by providing opportunities to participate in a contemporary art discourse.
