The Art Galleries at TCU presents "Everything Must Go!," Fernando Alvarez’ MFA thesis exhibition.

"Everything Must Go!" features work that confronts ideas of paranoia, surveillance, and violence, as they relate to the conditions of the artists’ displacement from his home country of Honduras. The body of work exhibited consists of text-based paintings, objects, and videos; most of which are assisted by shipping materials, like plastic and plywood. The work is often presented humorously in order to make the difficult, or uncomfortable, more accessible. A nuanced approach to language helps guide this quest; often co-opting American idioms and other well known references to speak about vulnerable inner conflicts centered around unresolved past experiences. "Everything Must Go!" represents the latest installment in Alvarez’s investigation into the intersections between his family, national, and cultural history.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through March 4.
