Event Series Event Series: Two Volcanoes

Two Volcanoes

May 24 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

The Union for Contemporary Art will display London-based artist Alicia Reyes McNamara’s “Two volcanoes grow together, two rivers lay side by side,” an investigation into the queering of Mexican and Irish folklore and rituals in which beings and landscapes mutate and shapeshift, creating a personal imaginary in forms of embodiment. The collection of dream-like paintings reimagines femme centered folklore and reclaims these stories and explores these deities as independent, self-possessed beings who have the potential to transcend their own definition and acquire a new life or meaning.

Reyes McNamara writes: “I hope to transport the viewer into an unfixed amorphous world of shapeshifting feminine energy, and they be both curious and uneasy.”

The exhibit is on display May 4 through June 22. The opening reception is May 4 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.; at noon, Reyes McNamara will join us in conversation on the themes of her collection.
