Ivan Salcido: For Eva & 3V4

In his exhibition For Eva: & 3V4, Ivan Salcido honors the legacy of his grandmother, who toured nationally with her successful Mexican basketball team while she was young. In his vibrant exhibition Salcido combines painting, neon lights and installation elements, as well as a 48” tall playing card. The recipient of an RACC grant, Salcido retroactively designed memorabilia for his grandmother and her championship team. He incorporates imagery from the past and present of Mexican basketball to commemorate successes that might otherwise be forgotten, while encouraging wider discussions of cultural preservation.
