William Cordova, an interdisciplinary cultural practitioner, will give the visiting artist lecture at noon on Wednesday, March 29, in the University Galleries.
Born in Lima, Peru, Cordova now lives and works in Lima, Miami, and New York City, and has exhibited in the U.S., Latin America, Europe, and Asia. His work addresses the metaphysics of space and time and how objects and perception change when we move around in space.
In 2011 Cordova was invited for his first one-person museum exhibition in Europe, yawar mallku: royalty, abductions y exiles at La Conservera, Murcia, Spain, and was also awarded the Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant. In 2013, he was nominated and participated in the prestigious American Academy in Berlin Fellowship.
Cordova’s work is in the public collection at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Guggenheim Museum, New York; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Harvard University; Cambridge, Massachusetts; the Yale Art Gallery, New Haven, Connecticut; Museo de Arte de Lima, Lima, Peru; Ellipse Foundation, Cascais, Portugal; Perez Art Museum, Miami; and La Casa de las Americas, Havana, Cuba among others.
