Visiting Artist Juana Valdes
Juana Valdes’ artwork is grounded in a multi-disciplinary practice that combines the process of printmaking, photography, sculpture and ceramic. It integrates the social-political discourse within the art object to analyze relationships between contemporary and historical imagery and their connection to the social political and economic dominance of the cultures that produce them and their impact on cultural memory. Valdez’ work traces, recollects, and records her personal experience as a Cuban-American immigrant.
