Pilar Corrias is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new work by Gisela McDaniel, the Detroit-based artist’s second show with the gallery.
McDaniel (b. Bellevue, Nebraska, 1995) is a diasporic, indigenous CHamoru artist. Her work draws on healing from her own sexual trauma and the healing of womxn and non-binary people who have survived sexual trauma and violence. For each portrait, McDaniel collaborates closely with her subjects, incorporating audio elements and personal objects connected to them. Through her portraits, McDaniel documents and pays tribute to her subjects’ strength and resilience, while also serving to amplify the realities of marginalised individuals and to enable both individual and collective healing.
