This joint exhibition will consist of:
“The Theory of Negativity” by Natalie Alemán
“Who’s Laughing Now?” by Paige Guerra
Natalie Alemán’s exhibit, “The Theory of Negativity,” creates a physical embodiment of negativity in large sculptures. “I examine the way negativity affects the objects around us as well as how we interact with them once they have been marked by negativity. Studies have shown that, as much as we may hate to admit it, people have stronger reactions and more resilient memories connected to the negative aspects of our lives as opposed to the positive aspects.”
The painting exhibit, “Who’s Laughing Now?” by Paige Guerra is a tongue-in-cheek exhibition. “My paintings are an exploration of the intersections of feminism and identity through a humorous lens. Using large and colorful abstractions, I create playful paintings that examine gender roles, female agency, and self identity.”
