The Third Space Gallery features a solo exhibition by artist Kandy Lopez with textile artworks from her (In)visibility:Yup-pity series. As a female Afro-Caribbean figurative artist, Lopez is eager to be challenged materialistically and metaphorically when representing marginalized individuals that inspire and move her. Lopez explores constructed identities, celebrating the strength, power, confidence and swag of individuals who live in urban and often economically disadvantaged environments. Kandy G Lopez was born in New Jersey and moved with her family to Miami. She received her BFA and BS from the University of South Florida and MFA from Florida Atlantic University. She is currently the Program Director for the Art + Design program and an Associate Professor at Nova Southeastern University.
