Alicia Reyes Mcnamara is a Chicago-born artist living in London, whose work deals with issues of displacement, particularly within a double diaspora, and aims to challenge incomplete identities constructed by two-dimensional ideas of Latino culture.
Reyes Mcnamara’s paintings and installations combine a cartoon aesthetic with complex references to critical theory, Latin American folk art, and family history, to question ideas of authenticity within a diaspora.
