Reception | 39. El Nopal by Fidencio Fifield-Perez

March 3, 2017 @ 6:00 pm8:00 pm


Fidencio Fifield-Perez

Memphis College of Art will host a reception honoring the works of MCA alumnus Fidencio Fifield-Perez (formerly Martínez) in the exhibition 39. El Nopal: No one visits the nopal until it bears fruit. The show will be on view in the Rust Hall Main Gallery Feb. 13-April 18. The show and reception are free and open to the public, as well as his Visiting Artist lecture on March 2.

Fifield-Perez’s work focuses on labor, societal perceptions of Los Invisibles, and maps as a simulation of reality. His work reflects on government practices toward the Latino community that he considers exploitative, marginalizing and reductive. As an undocumented immigrant, Fifield-Perez is acutely aware of the debate over politicized borders and of those who must traverse them.
