Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla are a collaborative artist duo who work together under the combined name Allora & Calzadilla. Since 1995, the pair has been experimenting with visual art as a catalyst for social change, seeking to engage their audience and encourage active participation through their work. Their projects have encompassed a range of mediums—sound, video, performance, sculpture—and often deal with issues of politics, cultural identity, and authorship.

Allora & Calzadilla represented the United States at the 2011 Venice Biennial. Their work has also been exhibited in the Renaissance Society at the University of Chicago, the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, and many more. They have also received multiple awards and grants including the 2004 Korea Foundation Award and the 2003 Penny McCall Foundation Grant.
