Gabriel Sosa

Gabriel Sosa is a Cuban-American artist, educator, linguist, and curator. Often drawing upon his upbringing in Miami and over a decade of work as a court interpreter in Boston, he uses legal proceedings, personal archives, and contemporary visual culture to explore the mutability of language, the imperfection of memory, and the misinterpretation of both. His work has been shown at Tufts University Art Galleries; O, Miami Poetry Festival; A R E A, Boston; Lugar a dudas, Cali, Colombia; Contemporary Jewish Museum, San Francisco; and Fábrica de Arte Cubano, Havana, Cuba. He has organized exhibitions at Haley House in Roxbury, and the Nave Gallery in Somerville. He was also part of the curatorial team of Area Code, the first art fair to showcase artists with ties to New England. Gabriel teaches at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design and is Deputy Director of Essex Art Center in Lawrence, Massachusetts.
