Sarita Garcia is the next artist in “Five Works,” a bimonthly project series that features new and/or recent works from members of the Chicago art community. Curated by the staff of Mana Contemporary Chicago, “Five Works” is installed in various intimate and site-specific settings, allowing an inside look into the developing practice of emerging and mid-career artists.
Works are on view by appointment and available for purchase. https://www.manacontemporary.com/exhibition/fiveworks/
Sarita Garcia is a multidisciplinary artist and educator based in Chicago and born and raised in South Texas. Her work is informed by architectural spaces of her vernacular culture using an image archive of markets to talk about consumerism, identity and cultural hubs. These “fantasyscapes” showcase a vocabulary of iconography as a means to empower and remix the reality of these spaces.
Garcia received her BFA in fiber & material studies from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She has exhibited her work in multiple cultural institutions in Chicago such as the National Museum of Mexican Art, Hyde Park Art Center, Chicago Art Department, ACRE and Sullivan Galleries. Nationally Garcia has shown in Laband Art Gallery, Los Angeles; City Gallery, San Diego; and Blue Star Contemporary in San Antonio. Garcia’s pedagogy is also practiced through facilitating and maintaining an open printmaking studio for young people in the heart of Pilsen named Yollo Lab.
