Lissa Rivera exhibition Beautiful Boy at Clark Gallery

Clark Gallery is pleased to announce their upcoming provincetown pop gallery featuring a solo exhibition by alumni Lissa Rivera. Beautiful Boy follows her collaboration with her friend, muse, and romantic partner in an effort to create a private domain in which fantasy and real life collide. Based on a conversation in which her friend divulged his collegiate habit of donning women’s clothing, the pair constructs a series of glamorous and alluring portraits in which gender and our understanding of it becomes ambiguous and nuanced. Beautiful Boy is a testament both to the man before her lens and her abiding love for him.

The reception will take place on July 6th from 6-10pm. The exhibition will be on view June 27th through July 25th, 2018 at Clark Gallery (Provincetown Pop-Up) located at 444 Commercial Street, Provincetown, MA.

In related new, Rivera's work has also been acquired recently by Museum of Fine Arts Houston  and Newport Art Museum. On Saturday June 30th, her latest curatorial effort Our Souls to Keep will debut at Field Projects, NYC. The works were selected from an open call of over 1,100 entries. Representing both a keen awareness of repression and a sense of personal awakening, the artists in 'Our Souls To Keep' employ vernacular languages and outmoded processes to express the historical absurdities of American mythology, investigating the undercurrents of social control from the perspective of their own lived experiences.
