Event Description

Join us for our in-gallery tour program, Local Views at PAMM, where select local artists will speak about 3-5 works of art currently on view at the museum. This month, artist Alex Nuñez will lead the tour.

Local Views at PAMM gives visitors a first-hand interaction with local artists by creating conversations centered around art and the creative process. This casual 30-minute conversation is offered on the fourth Thursday of each month.

About Alex Nuñez
Alex Nuñez is a Cuban-American mixed media painter from Miami, FL. She received her BA from Loyola University, New Orleans in 2006 after which she completed international workshops at Firenze Arti Visive, Florence and Metàfora, Barcelona. In 2009 Nuñez received her Post-baccalaureate diploma from School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. In 2012 Nuñez earned her MFA from Hunter College, New York where she was awarded the C12 Emerging Artist Fellowship. Nuñez's practice concentrates on the amalgamation of pop culture and personal image hoarding— ranging from appropriated images from vintage magazines to comic books—with explosions of color, texture, and sheen. Bursting with iridescent pigments, pastel chalk, glitter, confetti, pompoms, candy, and banana peels, Nuñez's compositions become immersive environments that play on memory, erosion, overindulgence, disorientation, humor, vanity, narcissism, and opulence. Integral to her creative process is music; whether it be through source imagery or visual inspiration by way of audio stimulation. Quite naturally, Nuñez's love affair with sound lead to the launch of "Sunday Painter", a podcast series that explores the connection between artists and their inspirations. Broadcasted weekly (Sundays, 8PM EST) on KPISSFM, "Sunday Painter" features an array of artists and opens up a dialogue across mediums. She currently is an artist in resident at Fountainhead Studios and Project Art.
