Full Artist's statement
I am an artist who makes participatory art installations that engage the public in art theory and social practice. In 2016, I was invited by the U.S. State Department’s “Art in Embassies” program to create an installation for the AIE exhibition, “Reflections on Diversity,” in San Jose, Costa Rica. I asked to collaborate with San Jose artists on the making of my textual boards and the installation was launched at the opening reception at the Ambassador’s Residence. Additionally, I conducted four social practice workshops; two for students at University of Costa Rica and National University, with further workshops at Museos de Central Bank for museum personnel, and another for local community artists, including Arte por la Paz. For a debrief on my incredible Costa Rica experience, please visit my blog, Theory Now. If you have an exhibition opportunity that you wish to share or enquiries about available artworks, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
