Mana Talks: Monika Bravo


Visual artist Monika Bravo will give a workshop on her sources of inspiration for her large-scale installations. Bravo examines the idea of perception to question the mental construction that is the world we live in. She uses her artistic practice as a tool to decipher her relationship with emotional space. Using images, sound, industrial materials and technology, she creates situations — objects and environments — that allude to recognizable landscapes thus examining the notion of space/time as a measure of reality.

Her installation “The Sound of the Word Is Beyond Sense” was commissioned by the Vatican Pavillion for the 56th Venice Bienniale. Among her most recent exhibitions are Waterweavers curated by José Roca and Alejandro Martín, Art Museum of the Americas, Washington DC 2015, Centro Conde Duque, Madrid 2015 and Bard Graduate Center, New York 2014; Theorem. You Simply Destroy the Image I Always Had of Myself curated by Octavio Zaya, MANA Contemporary, Jersey City NJ 2015; Affective Architectures, Aluna Art Foundation, Miami FL 2014; URUMU (solo), NC-Arte, Bogotá 2014; Common Ground: Earth, Borusan Contemporary, Istanbul 2014.

This event is presented as part of Mana Talks, a free series of public workshops, lectures and conversations hosted by noteworthy artists across creative fields. For Winter/Spring 2016,
the theme is “The Muse,” inviting artists to discuss their sources of inspiration.
