Virtual Studio Visit with Rodrigo Valenzuela
November 5, 2020 | Thursday 6pm (PST)
Online Event

Join PCNW for a virtual studio visit with Los Angeles-based artist Rodrigo Valenzuela, whose work is currently featured in our exhibition Examining the American Dream.  Working across a broad spectrum of disciplines including photography, video, and installation, Valenzuela’s work constructs narratives, scenes, and stories which point to the tensions found between the individual and communities.  Born and raised in Chile, Valenzuela pulls on autobiographical threads to inform larger universal fields of experience. Often using landscapes and tableaus with day laborers or himself as the subject, Valenzuela explores the way that spaces, objects and people are translated into images. Valenzuela’s many residencies include Light Work in Syracuse, NY; a Core Fellowship at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX; Skowhegan, ME; Bemis Center, NE and the Center for Photography at Woodstock, NY.  He has exhibited his work widely and is represented by Upfor Gallery in Portland and Klowden Mann Gallery, LA.  Valenzuela received his MFA from the University of Washington and currently serves as Assistant Professor of Art at UCLA.
