Liliana Marquez’s “Re-Pop” solo exhibition is up Wednesday through June 25 at Gallery 263, 263 Pearl St., Cambridgeport. Gallery hours are noon to 7 p.m., Wednesdays through Saturdays. 12 Information is at gallery263.com/re-pop/.

    Marquez's 'Re-Pop' shows reclaimed America in art made out of the remains of mass culture
    The pop art of the 1950s captured a time of mass consumption, advertising and Elvis, producing garish pop culture full of melodrama, violence and primary colors; artist Liliana Marquez offers "re pop art" made from the remains of that mass consumption, where colors are muted but the message is optimistic.
