The New Gallery of Modern Art is introducing the work of Marcus Kenney and Phyllis Galembo to the Charlotte audience this autumn.
New Gallery will also host artist Phyllis Galembo. Using a direct, unaffected portrait style, she captures her subjects informally posed and strikingly attired in ritualistic dress. The photographs shown here are a small sampling of the raw portraits Phyllis took at important cultural and religious events throughout Mexico between 2008 and 2017. During religious holidays such as Semana Santa, Easter Week, Corpus Christi, and the Virgin of Guadalupe, families throughout Mexico participate in masquerade events.
