Artist to Artist

Marcela Pardo Ariza & Andrew Wilson

Conversation between Bay Area Now 8 artists Marcela Pardo Ariza and Andrew Wilson at YBCA Free Third Thursdays. Marcela Pardo Ariza explores the potential of constructed photography, handmade bending frames, and set building while celebrating the erroneous, dealing with issues of representation and questioning arbitrary hegemonies through prop-like objects and wry humor. Andrew Wilson is a multimedia artist working at the intersections of the consumption of the Black body and queerness. His work is at once beautiful, with an attention to craftsmanship, and repulsing in its graphic subject matter.
