Xavier Robles Armas (b.1991 Zacatecas, Mexico), is a multidisciplinary artist and curator, based in Brooklyn via Santa Ana, CA. He received his Masters in Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute where he studied Photography and was recipient of the Clay Morrison Scholarship. His work generates conversations between belonging and place. Through photography, sculpture, and installation he investigates the magic and potential within memory, the homosocial, brown neighborhoods and “nature”. He has had the opportunity to exhibit in the Universita Ca’Foscari, (Venice, Italy 2018) in conjunction with the Architecture Biennale, in Japan with Tokyo Arts University (2018) Chicago (2019), San Antonio (2020) and in New York. His practice both collaborative and multidisciplinary has led him to his curatorial publication entitled Paleta: Un Espacio for Queer bois of Color and to curating Incongruent Lineage at ProArts as a Curator-in-Residence. His upcoming curatorial project is titled Ambientes: Places After Time at Heaven Gallery in Chicago.
