This event has ended.

Juana Valdes, an installation artist and sculptor, is JCAL’s 2008-2009 Workspace artist-in-residence. Originally from Cuba, Valdes’ work is informed by her personal identity and experiences as an immigrant woman of color, as well as by her Afro-Cuban traditions and the social contexts of colonialism, migration, and trans-cultural experiences. Valdes adopts the approach of an anthropologist and archeologist, mining historical and literary texts in order to re-interpret and re-frame collective history, memory, and imagination, providing a means with which to navigate the social conditions of the present.
