See ‘La Familia,’ the solo exhibition of oil paintings by Jessica Alazraki, originally from Mexico City and now living in NYC, centers on portraits that celebrate Latinx culture by highlighting the role of the family in contemporary Latinx life. With her signature vibrant colors and decorative patterns, Alazraki’s paintings incorporate children, elders, animals and food, all around the central motif of the dining table, which translates the energy of the home in her depictions of domestic family narratives.
This is Alazraki’s fourth solo exhibition. She has participated in multiple group exhibitions, and has won several awards, most recently Emerging Artist Award, Jackson Painting Prize 2021; Queens Council on the Arts New Work Grant 2020; and named a finalist for the biennial Alexander Rutsch Painting Award, 2021.
Curated by Wanda Goudas and Black Wall Street Gallery Owner Dr. Ricco Wright, “La Familia” will open with a public reception from 7:00 - 9:00 pm on Wednesday, May 5.
