September 25, 2019

SMoCA premieres new work by artist Shizu Saldamando as part of the eighteenth iteration of a series that presents mid-career artists from the Southwest region of the United States and Mexico. Through intimate and provocative paintings, drawings, and video, Saldamando presents a contemporary take on portraiture that explores and challenges the constructs of identity.

"La Marianna", Shizu Saldamando, Oil and Mixed Media, Collage , 2019

 

She works from informal snapshots of friends and family, focusing on often-overlooked communities of color: punks, queers, activists, and artists. Challenging the traditional conventions of wealth and prestige in portraiture, Saldamando presents work that allows the underground crowd to see themselves reflected and affirmed in contemporary culture, while making them visible to new audiences.

Organized by the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art. Curated by Director and Chief Curator Jennifer McCabe.

Sponsored by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
