PATRON is proud to announce our participation in The Armory Show Presents with a two-person presentation of Kaveri Raina and Noé Martínez. This presentation converges on both artists’ explorations of their identity through a dialogue between contemporary multi-cultural realities and the layers of historical, colonial, and geographical influences that have shaped, in all of it’s complexity, their sense of self.
