Set The Stage

Alexandra Nechita
Set The Stage, 2021.
Original acrylic painting.
Signed at the lower margin.
This artwork is framed and wall-ready.

Nechita’s public art project is a larger-than-life mural recreating her “Set The Stage” canvas painting, which is displayed on the iconic corner of Hollywood and Highland, commissioned by The Hollywood Partnership committee and Arts Bridging The Gap, an organization that brings arts programs to children in underserved areas through immersive arts programs. The mural was unveiled in November of 2021.

“It has become abundantly clear to me, both as a woman and an artist, that while accountability can be burdensome, it is the only way towards growth. The responsibility of impacting change and evolution lies in our own assertion of what is wrong and what requires a voice. Too often, the voiceless are reduced to their vulnerability of being a minority. Then, complacency sets in tragically, and life moves on, leaving behind the issues and people that need championing.

As members of this mosaic, it is our duty to uphold our communities and fellow humans. For me, the art experience should stand unapologetically strong in its power to generate messaging through it, and this mural represents how profoundly engaging imagery can be. I take my responsibility as an artist seriously, and while my hope is to galvanize actual change, at the very least, I would like to catalyze a conversation. — Alexandra Nechita
