UNTITLED STUDY FOR AXIS
March 28th to April 12th 2014 (Visitation by appointment the weeks of March 28th-April 21 also available)
Curated by Aisha Tandiwe Bell
Opening Friday March 28th 6-8pm
Valverde's work is driven by creative research. It is the chronicling, indexing and archiving of patterns, and the examining of ways in which they empower and adorn space, the body and the psyche. She is interested in systemic arrangements and collections of objects, sounds and textures manifested through the experience of music, materials and memories in the individual and in societies.
Valverde is an interdisciplinary artist based in New York. She received her MFA at the University of Pennsylvania in 2012 and her BFA from the School of Visual Arts. Valverde is the recipient of University of Pennsylvania's Graduate School of Design's Full Dean's Fellowship, and in 2010 received the Artist Fellowship, Inc. Individual Artist Award and the Mayer Foundation Grant. Mary A. Valverde was the 2011 MFA Lecturer at the ICA Philadelphia, was artist in residence at Artist Alliance Residency 2007, and at Aljira Center for Contemporary Art's Emerge Program in 2006. Valverde has exhibited her work at The New Jersey State Museum, Art Center South Florida, El Museo del Barrio, The Queens Museum of Art, Jersey City Museum, Momenta Gallery, Saltworks Gallery, Corridor Gallery, Rush Arts Gallery, Diaspora Vibe Gallery, Bronx River Arts, Abrons Art Center, Cuchifritos Gallery, Tribes Gallery, amongst others. Valverde has contributed to various projects through the BASE collective and Couturemonials.
