Mata Ruda’s portraits exude a distinct soulful beauty that splendidly captures the essence of the immigrants and other outsiders that speak to him. Mata Ruda’s first solo exhibit, “Incurable Otherness,” in conjunction with Bushwick Open Studios, provides us with an intimate look into the artist’s sensibility and aesthetic.
This exhibit is open to the public this weekend at The Schoolhouse at 330 Ellery Avenue in Bushwick. The turn of the century site of Public School 52, The Schoolhouse is the perfect setting.
