Within the Artists-in-Residence Program, CCA is delighted to host the artist Claudia Peña Salinas. Born in 1977 in Montemorelos, Mexico, Peña studied at the Art Institute of Chicago and obtained her MFA from Hunter College, New York. In the last years, Claudia has developed a significant body of work composed of sculpture, installation, painting, video, publications and photography. After a residency at SOMA México, the artist has been reunited with her native country. The process of documentation, travel, collection, accumulation and discovery in the artistic practice of Claudia points towards a spatial, material and temporal reflection; it is an intimate and personal way of relating to Mexico, which reaches cultural and political dimensions. Claudia currently lives and works between Brooklyn and Mexico City and will be staying in Studio Azul during March 2023.
