Join us live on Instagram from your cell phone, or watch on YouTube after, for a series of remote visits to artists' studios to bring Americas Society's Visual Arts public programs to your home. Every other Wednesday this month, contemporary artists will dialogue with our Visual Arts department about their work and practice. Check out the series playlist.
About the artist:
Marcela Pardo Ariza (b. Bogotá, Colombia) is a queer latinx visual artist and curator that explores the relationship of representation, kinship, and queerness through constructed photographs, color sets, and installations. Through staging varied subjects and anthropomorphic objects, Ariza deploys sets as a resource to the possibility of (re)building a story, while materializing potential yet attainable narratives fundamental to envisioning present and future prospects. Ariza’s work illustrates her commitment to celebrating the erroneous, navigating intergenerational connection, and questioning arbitrary paradigms while playing with the rigidity that is often present in the photographic medium.
