Creative Attention Artist Residency Conversation with Christine Wong Yap and Marcel Pardo Ariza
Join our Creative Attention artist residents for a virtual presentation about their work and their residencies in conjunction with Creative Attention.
Marcel Pardo Ariza (b. 1991, Bogotá, Colombia) is a trans visual artist and curator that explores the relationship of representation, kinship and queerness through constructed photographs, color sets and installations. Their practices celebrate the so-called erroneous, navigate intergenerational connection, and question arbitrary paradigms while pushing against the boundaries of photography. Their work has recently been exhibited at the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art; Richmond Art Museum; San Francisco Arts Commission Galleries; Yerba Buena Center for the Arts; Palm Springs Art Museum; and the Institute of Contemporary Art San José. Ariza is a former member of the Curatorial Council at Southern Exposure, a co-founder of Art Handlxrs, and a studio member at Minnesota Street Project.
Christine Wong Yap (she/they) is a visual artist and social practitioner working in community engagement, drawing, printmaking, publishing, and public art. She partners with organizations to conduct participatory research projects to explore dimensions of psychological wellbeing such as belonging, resilience, interdependence, and collaboration. She has participated in over a dozen residencies and studio programs. She is based in the San Francisco Bay Area, after a decade of living in New York City.
