Cristina Velásquez is an artist working primarily with photography and weaving. Her work examines postcolonial structures of power in Latin America such as, race, class, and labor distribution. She is interested in the way one culture translates another, and how inevitably, a dominant culture sanitizes and reduces the other in a subtle, and not so subtle, continuity of colonialism. Cristina’s work resists this legacy from the perspective of her native Colombia. Cristina received an MFA degree in Advanced Photographic Studies from Bard College and the International Center of Photography (2017). Most recent recognitions include Regeneration 4, Musée de l’Elysée, Lausanne (2020); the Light Work Artist-In-Residency program (2019); the Carol Crow Fellowship (2019); and the Kris Graves Project, Lost II Book Prize (2019).
Cristina's work has been shown widely including exhibitions at Musée de l’Elysée, ArtBo, MoMA PS1, International Center of Photography, and Houston Center for Photography, in addition to being held in private and public collections. Her monographs Viterbo (Kris Graves Projects, 2019), and Montañera (self published, 2017) have been collected by Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Getty Institute, Whitney Museum, Guggenheim Museum, Amon Carter Museum of American Art, the International Center of Photography, and School of the Art Institute of Chicago, among many others.
