Nayda Collazo-Llorens

Stuart and Barbara Padnos Distinguished Artist

Nayda Collazo-Llorens, born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, is engaged in a multidisciplinary practice examining the way in which we perceive and process information. Projects in 2014 include Stranger Land, a site-specific textual intervention at Kalamazoo Colleges Arcus Center for Social Justice Leadership, and Dis/connect, a solo exhibition at LMAK projects in New York. Previous projects include Pleasure, Fear & the Pursuit of Happiness, commissioned by the Bass Museum of Art in Miami (2013); An Exercise in Numbness & Other Tales at the Richmond Center for Visual Arts, Kalamazoo (2012); Revolú*tion, a façade intervention at the 3rd Poly/Graphic Triennial, San Juan (2012); and Reverb, a multi-channel video installation at Museo Universitario del Chopo, Mexico City (2012). She received an MFA from New York University in 2002 and a Pollock-Krasner Foundation Fellowship in 2012. Her work has been reviewed in The New York Times, Artnet, Art Nexus, Art News, BOMBlog, and Newcity, among others.
