Visiting Artist: Sarah Rosalena Balbuena- Brady

Here is a bit more about Sarah:

Sarah Rosalena Balbuena-Brady is an interdisciplinary artist and researcher based in Los Angeles. Her work deconstructs technology with material interventions, creating new narratives for hybrid objects that speak on issues such as AI, aerospace technologies, and decolonial posthumanism. Hybrids function between human/nonhuman, ancient/future, handmade/autonomous to override power structures rooted in colonialism. They collapse binaries and borders, creating new epistemologies between Earth and Space. She is Assistant Professor of Art at UC Santa Barbara in Computational Craft and Haptic Media. She was recently given the LACMA Art + Tech Lab Grant, the Steve Wilson Award from Leonardo, the International Society for Art, Sciences, and Technology, and the Craft Futures Grant from Center for Craft. Her research focuses on Indigenous scholarship and mentorship in STEAM, she is multiracial Huichol and Laguna Pueblo. She has shown work at places such as the de Young Museum, Navel, New Wight Gallery, Ars Electronica, SOMArts Cultural Center, and Gray Area Art and Technology.

Priyanka Dasgupta will be exhibiting in Another Echo, an exhibition presented through In Practice at the SculptureCenter on view in Long Island City, NY January 29- April 2, 2018.

Priyanka Dasgupta & Chad Marshall’s installation considers the current plight of American immigration, by revisiting the paths that Blacks and early twentieth century Bengali sailors took to the United States, through the holds of slave ships and steamship boiler rooms. “The New Colossus”—the sonnet by Emma Lazarus engraved on the Statue of Liberty base—echoes through the installation: translated into Yoruba and Bengali, and set to traditional music by the artists’ collaborators Moses Mabayoje and Monjula Datta.
