Biographies

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 entitled Nowhere Else. Reyes McNamara received her MFA from the University of Oxford’s Ruskin School of Art in 2016, after completing her BFA at California College of the Arts. Her work has been included in the Bloomberg New Contemporaries exhibition at the Bluecoat, Liverpool and ICA, London in 2016. 

Chandra Frank is an independent curator, writer and PhD candidate. Her work is focused on the Black, Migrant and Refugee Women’s movement in the Netherlands during the 1980s. She explores the role of archives, Black and brown feminist genealogy and the politics of pleasure and resistance. Frank is interested in uncovering hidden queer stories, countering the archive and thinking towards decolonial modes of research and curating.

Daniella Valz Gen’s practice encompasses text, installation, performance and collaborative projects. Focusing on the poetic as a means of resistance, her work seeks to return the global to a matter of bodies, of a body, of what it means to have a body that is often negated or undermined by wider structures. Through an ongoing practice based research engaging with affect and the means by which identity is negotiated, Valz Gen interrogates wider socio-political discourses by bringing matters back to the personal and subjective.

Valz Gen is an associate artist of Holding Space at The Showroom, London, and is currently leading Colaborar is the name of the game, an ACE funded project focused on issues around visibility, identity and gender within the Latin community in London, taking place through a collaboration with agency for agency, 198 Gallery, Gasworks and The Showroom.
