Juana Valdes
Juana Valdes (1963- ) is a Cuban multidisciplinary artist who works across ceramics, printmaking, video, and installations. She explores themes such as race, gender, class, and migration in her work. Her practice is an archive of her migration experiences as an Afro-Cuban woman through the lens of material culture. ⁠Her mapping of African, Asian, and European, Caribbean migrations complicates and unfurls histories of colonialism. Valdes has a strong interest in material as well, focused on their associations with ideas of the "feminine" and manual labor. Valdes received her BFA in Sculpture from the Parsons School of Design in 1991 and her MFA in Fine Arts from the School of Visual Arts New York City in 1993.
