Carmen Argote:  Mansión Magnolia

Opening Reception: April 16, 2016 6-8pm

Shulamit Nazarian is pleased to announce Mansión Magnolia, a solo exhibition by Los Angeles-based artist Carmen Argote. Known primarily for her large-scale architectural installations, the artist has created her first exhibition comprised entirely of photography.

Argote developed this body of work in Guadalajara, Mexico, while inhabiting Mansión Magnolia, her ancestral home turned public events space. The works produced within the mansion explore the ways in which domestic space can impact the body and construct notions of self. The photographs also serve as an extension of the artist’s previous installations, which explore memory, architecture, and the notion of home through the modification of physical space. (more…)
