ALEJANDRO DIAZ (American, 1963 – )

Alejandro Diaz cleverly explores the boundaries of race and class by merging humor, urban imagery, products, folk art, fine art, and advertising.  His conceptual and campy cardboard signs, which he made and sold on the streets of Manhattan, earned him an international reputation. They are emblematic of his recurrent use of everyday materials, his humor infused politics, and his ongoing involvement with art as a form of entertainment, activism, public intervention, and free enterprise.  From these humble, hand written signs to his glamorous works in neon, from his oversized cans of beans and corn to his witty, appropriations of many of contemporary art’s “greatest hits”, Diaz continues to challenge the preconceived notions of culture, society and status.

 Alejandro Diaz has exhibited at the Rhode Island Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, NY; the Los Angeles County Museum, CA; the Phoenix Art Museum, AZ; Museo Rufino Tamayo, Mexico City; the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, AZ; the Aldridge Contemporary Art Museum, CT; and the Museo Del Barrio, NY. Diaz has had public installations in New York, NY, San Antonio, TX and St. Moritz, Switzerland. He is included in the permanent collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Rhode Island Museum of Art, the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, the Fundación/Colección Jumex in Mexico City, and the St Gallen’s University in Switzerland.
