Alicia Eggert's Exhibitions in Portugal and China
Congratulations to Alicia Eggert, Assistant Professor of Studio Art and the Sculpture Program Coordinator at UNT CVAD! The opening of her solo exhibition in Porto, Portugal, which runs from June through September, was very well received at Galeria Fernando Santos. As a result, Alicia has been added the roster of represented artists at the Galeria. She will return to Porto next year to produce work in a factory there, which will enable her to have a much larger solo exhibition in their gallery in September 2018. Alicia says, "I'm very excited to have gallery representation in Europe. And to return to Portugal, because it's incredible!"
In addition to this great news, Alicia's work will also be included in two exhibitions in China later this summer. One exhibition, titled The Model of the World, will take place at the Museum of Art in Zhangzhou, Fujian Province, China. You can see a preview catalogue for that exhibition here. The other exhibition, a smaller group exhibition this August, will be organized by T+H Gallery and displayed at Tang Contemporary Art in Beijing. Alicia commented, "that one is very exciting because Tang Contemporary Art is one of the leading contemporary art galleries in Asia (they are the primary gallery that represents Ai Weiwei)."
