Join us live on Instagram from your cell phone, or watch here and on YouTube live or after, for a series of remote visits to artists' studios to bring Americas Society's Visual Arts public programs to your home. Every Wednesday this month, contemporary artists will dialogue with our Visual Arts department about their work and practice.

About the artist:

Sara Ramo (Brazilian and Spanish, b. Madrid, España, 1975) has exhibited her work in institutions including the Museo Reina Sofia, Centro Botín, Musée d’art Contemporain de Lyon, Garage Museum of Conteporary Art in Moscow, DHC/ART Foudation for Contemporary Art in Montreal, MAM Museo de Arte Contemporánea de Sao Paulo, Kunsthal KadE of Holland, National Museum of Contemporary Art in Bucharest, and the New Museum in New York. She has perticipated in international exhibitions of contemporary art including the Bienal de Venecia in 2009; Sharjah Biennial in 2013, Bienal de São Paulo in 2010 and 2018, and la Bienal de la Habana in 2019, among others. Her practice includes different formats including video, installation, sculpture, or collages. She invites the viewer to question their previously acquired values, going to areas close to the unconscious and using methods like psychoanalysis, history, mythology, or magic. Specifically, she investigates situations of alteration and loss of significance using materials and objects from everyday life and testing ideas and perceptions of reality.
