Join us for the opening reception of ‘Decolonial Dream’, a solo exhibition of work by Nicolei Gupit. An artist talk will take place at 5:30 PM.
Nicolei is a recipient of the Elizabeth Charles Fund which supports artists who are working in the social justice or DEI realm.
Artist statement: “As a multidisciplinary artist born and raised in Los Angeles, I make paintings, sculptures, videos, and mixed-media installations that draw on two distinct but intimately tied cultures: Filipinx and American cultures. By layering different elements from American and Filipinx cultures together, my body of work expresses the cultural hybridity that reflects my identity and my experience as a second-generation immigrant. As a whole, I take inspiration from my Filipinx family heritage and upbringing in Los Angeles to speak on the challenges that many members of immigrant and diasporic communities face.”
