Alejandro Diaz: "It Takes a Village" Opening

Linda Pace Foundation

April 17, 2015 11:00 pm - April 18, 2015 1:00 am

<p>The Linda Pace Foundation presents <em>It Takes a Village</em>, a solo exhibition of work by New York-based artist Alejandro Diaz. The exhibition focuses on Diaz&rsquo;s eclectic and satirical aesthetic, featuring a series of new works comprising sculptures, paintings, and a site-specific installation, as well as a hand-woven tapestry from 2014.&nbsp;</p>
<p>As an artist with a national voice, Diaz grew up in San Antonio, Texas, and much of his work is influenced by the contemporary Mexican/Texan cultures of his youth. <em>It Takes a Village</em> uses pop, modern, and folkloric works of art as its starting point, and evokes previous artists or art movements that combined high and low art, often using language and humor as a form of cultural and socio-economic critique.</p>
