Cristina Velásquez

Cristina Velásquez is an artist working primarily with photography and weaving. Her work examines postcolonial structures of power in Latin America, such as race, class, and labor distribution. She is interested in the way one culture translates another, and how inevitably, a dominant culture sanitizes and reduces the other in a subtle, and not so subtle, continuity of colonialism. Velásquez’s work resists this legacy from the perspective of her native Colombia. Most recent recognitions include Regeneration 4, Musée de l’Elysée, Lausanne (2020); the Light Work Artist-In-Residence program (2019); the Carol Crow Fellowship (2019); and the Kris Graves Project, Lost II Book Prize (2019). Velásquez's work has been shown widely including exhibitions at Musée de l’Elysée, ICP Museum, ArtBo, MoMA PS1, International Center of Photography, and Houston Center for Photography, in addition to being held in numerous private and public collections.
