Carolina Cueva is a multidisciplinary artist born in Lima, Peru and lives in Miami, Florida. She received her BFA from the School of Visual Arts in 2007.
Her work is a response and conversation between her unconscious, personal narrative, and history. Her Andean heritage informs her work through memories, materiality, and the transcendental. Woven into her works is an intuitive process of making which allows her to access something outside herself and as it develops, she seeks to transform both real and imagined, past and present narratives.
She is one half of the performance art duo presenting Cuentos Retablados, which is a series of performance art pieces delving into reconciling modern identity with indigenous culture and ancestry.
In addition to her art practice she works with youth and is invested in the transformative, restorative, and change-making capacities of imagination and creativity. She has an extensive history with museums, institutions and non-profits as a teaching artist and facilitator throughout Miami-Dade County.
Her work has been featured in venues including Photo L.A, Port Angeles Fine Arts Center, The Little Haiti Cultural Center, The Miami-Dade Public Library, BaCA/Bailey Contemporary Arts, The Projects at Fat Village, The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami, Doral Contemporary Art Museum, and The Nada Fair.
