My Sis: An Artist Talk by Martine Gutierrez
Martine Gutierrez (b. 1989 Berkeley, CA) is an artist working across performance, photography and film. Simultaneously acting as subject, artist and muse, Gutierrez embodies various imagined personas and employs pop culture tropes in order to reveal identity as a social construct. She has long been interested in creating works that explore the complexity, fluidity and nuances of both personal and collective identity. Gutierrez has been included in exhibitions at Arnot Art Museum, Elmira, NY; Lowe Gallery at Hofstra University, Hempstead, NY; MOCA GA, Atlanta, GA; and Vincent Price Art Museum, Monterey Park, CA. Recent solo exhibitions include Martine Gutierrez: True Story at Boston University Art Gallery and WE & THEM & ME at Contemporary Art Museum Raleigh in North Carolina.
