Yvette Mayorga’s multidisciplinary practice casts visions of intricate worlds, by fusing Rococo iconography, contemporary images of militarization, confectionary aesthetics, and consumer objects. Shaped by her experience as a first-generation Latinx artist, the artist responds to utopian visions of immigration and belonging, while aiming to disrupt the art historical canon. In addition to being exhibited at venues such as the Museum of Art and Design in New York, NY and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, CA, Mayorga’s work is currently the subject of solo presentations at the Momentary in Bentonville, AR and the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, CT. Based in Chicago, the artist also has work in the permanent collections that include the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, the DePaul Art Museum, El Museo del Barrio, John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, and the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, among others.

Rendered in Mayorga’s signature pink and frosted style, The Reenactment with Nike Air Jordans After the Last Supper is compositionally inspired by a photograph that she captured inside her childhood home. The artist’s nieces and nephew are seated before a dining table covered with overabundant details, such as flip phones, gilded plates, and rose stems. Dressed in eighteenth-century garbs, the nieces don acrylic nails encrusted with decor accessories, while the nephew clutches a pair of Nike sneakers for viewing pleasure. Mayorga infuses a Rococo style of ornamentation into her depictions of the archetypal Latinx home and the objects within—for instance, the reproduction of Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper hanging behind the primary figures, which takes after a store-bought rendition that has resided in her parents’ dining room for over thirty years. As a whole, the work comments on the new forms of currency and privilege, as well as what is perceived as luxury, within our contemporary world. Ten prints in the edition are hand-embellished by the artist, who has added additional details including silver paint and reflective material.

Of this series benefitting El Museo del Barrio—where she presented work in 2021, as part of ESTAMOS BIEN - LA TRIENAL 20/21—Mayorga notes, “I’m excited to produce this print in support of El Museo del Barrio. Participating in its triennial was very important to my work and career. It was so meaningful to be in dialogue with other Latin-a and Latinx artists from all over the United States, and across different generations, all in one space.”
