Opening Reception: Saturday, October 22 from 5pm to 8pm

Carolina Mayorga’s work addresses issues of social and political content. Comments on migration, war, identity, translate into site-specific installations and multimedia pieces including video, performance art, photography and drawing.

In more recent projects, Mayorga has presented these themes as items for consumption in which the use of mass media marketing tools emphasize the intent to turn poverty, gender, and displacement into saleable products. In some cases, the artist applies her own image as a selling tool as she plays with cultural stereotypes related to her Latino background. The artist, a Colombian-born and naturalized American citizen, uses her insider/outsider view of American culture to reveal sometimes tragic realities through aesthetically pleasing sculptures, playful scenes, and satirical infomercials, read more about Fruits, Flies and Other Delights and Carolina Mayorga at art.evolveDC.com.
