Alicia Reyes McNamara: Nowhere Else
7 APR - 11 JUN 2017, FIRST FLOOR GALLERIES, FREE
Following six months as the South London Gallery's Graduate-in-Residence in the Outset Artists' Flat, Alicia Reyes McNamara presents her first solo show in a public institution. Reyes McNamara's work aims to challenge incomplete identities constructed by two-dimensional ideas of Latino culture. Her work translates the Mexican American or Chicana identity through her explorations of language as a territory and space to challenge ideas of authenticity within a diaspora. Combining sculpture, painting and video work in the exhibition, Reyes McNamara investigates key texts by Mexican American theorist Gloria E. Anzalúda, Dominican American writer Junot Díaz, and Cuban American poet Gustavo Pérez Firmat.
