Born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela, Liliana Marquez has always been part of a creative, multicultural environment. She has dedicated her artistic practice to the concept of reclamation, relying on found and recycled materials--often taken from construction sites--to create sculptural wall-hanging abstractions. Her work is flexible, able to be hung at different angles and orientations, grouped together in different ways or shown stand-alone. Her bright colors and bold shapes reflect her background in graphic design, while the varied textures indicate her interest in mass production and reuse, calling back to the processes of Pop Art. For Marquez, “RePOPART is about attitude. RePOPART is an idea that forces us to RE-think ART.”
Liliana Marquez: RePOPART is on view from January 5 - February 25, 2018, with a public reception to be held on Thursday, January 11, 5:30-7:30 PM. The library is open Monday-Wednesday 10-6, Thursday 12-8, and Friday-Saturday 9-5 (closed Sundays). The exhibition space is located on the lower level.
