ARTalk Online: Roberto Lugo

Roberto Lugo was in conversation with curator of contemporary art Samantha Cataldo to mark the opening of his new exhibition at the Currier Museum, Roberto Lugo: Te traigo mi le lo lai (May 6 through September 26, 2021). The exhibition features a new body of work that is highly personal and explores cultural identity as tied to family, place, tradition, and legacy. With the exhibition’s title, Te traigo mi le lo lai (I bring you my joy), Lugo pays tribute to his Afro-Latino heritage and celebrates the joys of being a maker.


Roberto Lugo (b. 1981) is a Philadelphia-based potter, social activist, poet, and educator. He creates ceramics that subvert traditional forms and techniques by reimagining them with a 21st-century street sensibility inspired by urban graffiti. He directly engages with the legacy of fine porcelain by centering portraits of those whose faces, stories, and values have been historically absent, such as Frederick Douglass, Tupac Shakur, and the artist’s own family.
