Rivalry Projects is excited to present Signs of Autumn, a solo exhibition of new works by Buffalo-based artist Nando Alvarez-Perez.

Produced largely while in residence at Light Work in the summer of 2022, the works in the exhibition offer a complex meditation on America’s transition from an industrial to a financialized economy and its effect on the instability of our current social, political, and economic moment. The photographs capture objects found in thrift stores or on the street, books that informed his thinking about the work, movies and other recognizable cultural detritus, and documentation of Alvarez-Perez’s everyday. They exist as assemblage, as riddle-filled mind maps on America’s evolution, and how this shift has appeared in art, politics, and material culture, and, moreover, how it has appeared locally in Buffalo, New York, a city whose image is latched to world currents far beyond its control.
