Angel Otereo and Leslie Martinez

The Speed Art Museum is pleased to present a new installation of two recent monumental works by leading contemporary artists Angel Otero (b. 1981, Santurce, Puerto Rico) and Leslie Martinez (b. 1985, McAllen, Texas). Through combinatory practices of material exploration, painterly gesture, and technicolor mark-making, Otero and Martinez both depict broad ideas of our shared humanity, memory, and personal identity. For these artists, abstraction is the kaleidoscopic means of communicating complex, deeply personal narratives and concepts informed by their own lives and familial histories. The two immersive paintings featured in this presentation also reflect a new direction for the Speed’s contemporary art collection and program—one that actively centers and celebrates artwork by artists of color, queer folx, and female-identifying peoples.
