Body Without Organs

IMC Gallery, 202 S. Broadway, Urbana

The IMC Gallery is excited to announce its next exhibition featuring Angelo Ray Martinez

Within his paintings, Angelo Ray Martínez (b. 1981 in Boulder, CO) combines a playful variety of images, exploring the construction of personal and cultural identities. 8-bit video games graphics, tattoos, and items of clothing are some of the elements that are utilized to explore themes of appropriation, assimilation, and hybridity. His work questions the role of objects and images in the construction of self-identification while highlighting the increasing fluidity of identity in the post-internet age.

Martínez currently lives with his wife, artist Melonie Mulkey, in South Bend, IN and is an Instructional Assistant Professor at Illinois State University.

Opening Reception November 11th, 5-8pm

Exhibition Duration: November 11th-30th
