Alicia Reyes McNamara

Chicago, IL / London, England

Alicia Reyes McNamara’s work deals with issues of displacement, particularly within a double diaspora. It aims to challenge incomplete identities constructed by two-dimensional ideas of Latinx culture, while it acknowledges the absurdity, and at times vulgarity, in the projected images found within the media’s exaggerated caricatures and telenovela kitsch. During her residency at Bemis, she plans to create a surreal stop-motion animation that will investigate themes of futurism, sci-fi, and resilience of tradition.
