Martine Gutierrez's photographs and videos explore gender, race, class, and sexuality, as well as conventional ideals of beauty and identity as a social construct. Her most ambitious project to date, Indigenous Woman, 2018, is a glossy, 146-page publication that closely mirrors Andy Warhol's Interview magazine in form and production.

Here, Gutierrez assumes the role of editor, writer, model, designer, ad executive, and photographer, with fictional advertising and high-fashion spreads where the artist continually reinvents herself throughout its pages. One section of the publication features her Demons series, in which Gutierrez assumes the role of Aztec deities, such as the goddess of beauty, Xochiquetza, that were later referred to as "demons" after the Spanish conquest.

For her FOCUS exhibition, the artist will present photographs from the Indigenous Woman series.
