Carlos Llobet Montealegre:
The “Old” New Normal

May 3–18, 2019

For his MFA thesis exhibition with the University at Buffalo, Carlos Llobet Montealegre merges large-format relief prints, collage, and painting into life-size compositions.

The title, The “Old” New Normal, references the expression “the new normal.” Coined following the 2007–08 financial crisis, the term was used to describe a new reality that was to set in: weak growth, stagnant wages, low spending; permanently depressed economic conditions for the lower and middle classes. Llobet contends, however, that this “new normal” has been the reality in Latin American countries for most of their existence.
