Join us for the opening reception of the solo show featuring new works by QAF grantee Maria Liebaba at Local Project Art Space.
November 1st, 6-9 PM
11-27th 44th Rd, Long Island City, NY 11101
¿Tres Marias, Donde esta mi Felizidad? (Three Marias: Where is my Happiness?) 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.
This event is made possible in part by the Queens Council on the Arts with Public Funds from New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in Partnership with the City Council.
