Join us on the Albright-Knox’s Instagram page (@albrightknox) for a conversation between Curatorial Assistant Andrea Alvarez and artists Pedro M. Cruz and Felipe Shibuya (@felipeshibuya) about their work in Comunidades Visibles: The Materiality of Migration, on view at Albright-Knox Northland.
About the Artists
Originally from Portugal and currently based in Boston, Pedro M. Cruz explores information in metaphoric and figurative ways in his data visualization projects. Brazil-born, Buffalo-based artist Felipe Shibuya’s collaborative and research-driven practice merges science and art into powerful messages highlighting the relationship between humans and nature. John Wihbey is a researcher from Boston who worked closely with Cruz and Shibuya to analyze and picture census data for works included in this exhibition.
