Nicholas Zepeda

Exhibition Statement as Preserved in the SUGS/SITE Archives:

“Nicholas Zepeda’s exhibition, Is this it, is a show of drawings and paintings that see a new weight to self discovery after achieving his greatest childhood dream: moving into his own apartment.


The work sources this newfound freedom as a chance to discover the role of privacy in presenting a marginal identity. Mostly as works on paper, the show searches for answers somewhere between formalist pictorial strategies and post-teen angst.”


Is This It: Virtual Gallery Tour, Artist’s Talk, and Q+A

March 15, 6:00-7:00 PM

Program statement from the SUGs/SITE archive:

Join us on March 15th at 6pm for a zoom webinar where Nicholas Zepeda will be presenting on his solo exhibition, Is This It, currently on view at the 280 SITE Gallery.

The webinar will explore the significance of alternative choices in presentation, and the painful awkwardness of building a thesis on yourself. Nicholas will be combining the artist-talk-format with a video piece, and discussing how these ideas developed in the work on display. The program will conclude with a Q&A.
