We are honored to announce the recipient of the 2022 Untitled Art CCA Artist-in-Residence Prize is the young and talented Mexican artist Wendy Cabrera Rubio (MX, 1993), represented by General Expenses (Mexico City).
The selection of the winner has been carefully made by a jury chaired by Omar Lopez-Chahoud, Director of Untitled Art, Andrew Freiser, from Fredericks & Freiser, NY, as Art Ambassador and Jackie Herbst, Coordinator of CCA Andratx.
The CCA Artist-in-Residence Prize honors an outstanding position within the artists participating at Untitled Art 2022 and recognizes the work of the talented Wendy Cabrera Rubio as remarkable for her intersections that cross boundaries between high and low culture, image and object, narration and action. Rubio explores the relationships between aesthetics and ideology present in the mechanisms of production and distribution of images. Recurring themes in her work include biotechnology and the resurgence of the ultra-right and the Pan-American project, aiming to create bonds between cultures from the North, Center and South America.
The Prize carries a one-month Residency at the CCA Studios during May 2023 and thanks to the kind support of the community, the transport costs will be fully funded by the cultural section of the Andratx Townhall (Ajuntament d’Andratx).
For more than twenty years, CCA has been a production place and platform welcoming artists from all around the world. In our studios located in the core of the World Heritage Site Sierra de Tramuntana in Mallorca, artists find a unique space of retreat that allows them to create at the island’s own rhythm and nature, and enabling their artistic world and work to merge with the environment.
