Wedge Projects is pleased to announce Girlhood, a forthcoming exhibition of new works by Alyce Haliday McQueen. The works on view deftly incorporate all facets of McQueen’s interdisciplinary practice. Her skillful insinuation of photography into the vernacular of sculpture underscores the intangibility of nostalgia, delivering a sense familiarity that borders, at times, on intimacy. There is also a keen understanding of space at play in these works, as McQueen leverages architecture to bridge the divide between installation and immersive environment seamlessly.
Alyce Haliday McQueen is an artist and educator working in Chicago, IL. She holds a BFA from Columbia College Chicago and a MFA from California State University, Long Beach.
