Artist Maria Liebana will present an exhibition of new works at Local Project Art Space in Long Island City, Queens, with an opening reception November 1 from 6 to 9 PM. An artist talk will accompany the exhibition November 10 at 4 PM at Local Project.
¿Tres Marias Donde se Fue mi Felizidad? (Three Marias: Where Did My Happiness Go?) asks the three stars in Orion’s Belt: Where did my happiness go? Historically, the Three Sisters, also known as Las Tres Marias, have been timekeeping markers as well as guides for orientation. In this installation of new works, Liebana questions traditional notions of objectivity and the trustworthiness of perception. The life-size sculptures and ceramic self-portraits represent her identity as a female artist of color, and how society shapes her awareness of herself and her value in a capitalist patriarchy.
