Marginal Costs is the first solo museum exhibition of artist Lucia Hierro (b. 1987). Hierro’s practice, which includes sculpture, digital media, and installation, confronts twenty-first century capitalism through an intersectional lens. Appropriating imagery that ranges from commerce to art history, Hierro’s choices manifest her own multidimensional experience as a Dominican American New Yorker. With a studio methodology steeped in Pop Art, Minimalism, Conceptual Art, and European still life painting, as well as her own biographical circumstance, Hierro’s work surveys power, individuality, and opportunity specific to the communities she orbits.
The artist's first museum publication, featuring an essay by the exhibition's curator, Amy Smith-Stewart, accompanies the show.
