Alicia Reyes McNamara: Nowhere Else

South London Gallery
Until June 17
South London Gallery’s recent graduate-in-residence, Alicia Reyes McNamara, is now presenting her first show in a public institution. The artist investigates key texts by theorists, writers and poets through sculpture, paintings and video works.

Through her art, Reyes McNamara aims to challenge incomplete identities constructed by two-dimensional ideas of Latino culture.

The American-born artist often adopts cartoon and dream-like styles within her work to acknowledge the absurdities and vulgarities in projected media images when addressing Latino culture. Difficult subject matter is approached with humour.

Visitors will experience elements of Latin American folk art and mythology running through her art.

Alice Reyes McNamara will discuss her practice with curator Chandra Frank and artist Daniella Valz Gen on 24th May. Booking for this event is essential. Check gallery website for details.
