Alicia Reyes McNamara03 June - 03 July 2021Alicia Reyes McNamara draws on her background of growing up in Chicago with a Mexican and Irish cultural background. Her work confronts the notion of incomplete identities by two dimensional ideas of Latino culture as well as seeking to negotiate the ideas of displacement from within a double diaspora. She is interested in the changing identity of the Latinx diaspora and the consequent negotiations of authenticity that surround it. This exhibition of paintings is her debut solo show at Niru Ratnam Gallery and there will be a concurrent show of her drawings at the Annex, an appointment-only space in Lower Clapton, Hackney.
