In the Studio: Mariana Castillo Deball
Watch the video: On April 10 Americas Society hosted an Instagram live with the multidisciplinary artist on how culture and heritage are produced and shared.
Join us live on Instagram from your cell phone, or watch here and 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 Wednesday and Friday this month, contemporary artists will dialogue with Director and Chief Curator of Visual Arts Aimé Iglesias Lukin about their work and practice.
About the artist: Working in sculpture, printmaking, photography, and installation, Mariana Castillo Deball (b. 1975, Mexico City, Mexico) examines how knowledge and cultural heritage are produced, organized, measured, and authenticated. Exploring her philosophical interest in time and space as well as cosmology and depictions of natural order, Castillo Deball has engaged a diverse range of scholars in her research. Her works and installations often reflect Surrealist writer Roger Caillois’s notion of “diagonal sciences”—unusual cross-sections of the world that reveal what he called “neglected correlations,” and “tissues of thought.” Solo exhibitions of her work have been held at Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art, Rotterdam (2019), New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York (2019), Reva and David Logan Center for the Arts, University of Chicago (2018), Museo Amparo, Puebla, Mexico (2018), SCAD Museum of Art, Savannah Georgia (2018), Galerie Wedding, Berlin, Germany (2017), San Francisco Art Institute, San Francisco (2016), Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Oaxaca, Mexico (2015), Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin, Germany (2014); CCA, Glasgow, UK (2013); ChisenhaleGallery, London, UK (2013); Museo Experimental El Eco, Mexico City, Mexico (2011); and Museum of Latin American Art, Long Beach, USA (2010). Group exhibitions include the 8th Berlin Biennale, Berlin, Germany (2014); Documenta 13, Kassel, Germany (2013); and 54th Venice Biennale, Venice, Germany (2011).
