No hay de queso, nomas de papaby
No hay de queso, nomas de papa is Ronny Quevedo's response to the Bronx Blue Bedroom Project invitation-to exchange ideas and food. Ronny's offering is a representation of a dinner table. A gathering. A table, set for five. A drawing that employs heraldic conventions to explore materials and present an image of exchange.
The table, as a simple representation of community, is an extension of his interest in the construction of cultural markers and exposing the conflict between institutional education and vernacular expressions of personal history. The title references Chespirito, a Mexican TV show, and one of its popular punch lines. His interpretation looks at the transformation of materials, symbols and objects as forms of cultural reconstruction. This restyling of visual signs functions as a reclamation. It presents assimilation as a transformative struggle to counter definitions of identity in mass-culture.
