Fort Worth Contemporary Arts will present an artist talk by “Flâneuse” artist, Alicia Paz. She will talk about her sculptures and artistic practice and how her pieces inspired the curatorial direction of “Flâneuse.”

“Flâneuse” is a group exhibition featuring eight international artists whose work draws attention to the role of gender in contemporary urban experience. Through a variety of media the artists explore a diverse array of concerns about street life.

\Paz’s art reveals a vibrant interest in an eclectic mixture of genres ranging from Rococo painting and Pop Art, to Mexican surrealism. Her style is reflective of her life experiences of different cultures and spaces; she was born in Mexico, is now based in London, and has lived for long periods of time in France. Primarily a painter, her recent work has focused on the female figure, often inhabiting exotic or fantastical landscapes. In “Flâneueses,” a new series of semi-sculptural works (and the inspiration for this exhibition), Paz brings her painterly women to life as collage silhouettes in a three-dimensional world. Playful and coquettish, these colorful protagonists perform simultaneously as observers, guides and provocateurs.
