Jennifer ALLORA

Born in 1974 in Philadelphia (USA).

Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla have been working together since 1995. They live and work in Puerto Rico. Frequently mining the spaces between sculpture, performance, video, architecture, and social/public intervention, their inventive use of materials and strong sense of the aesthetic and social, encompass art historical references and create a new artistic vocabulary within a psychological, political and social context.

Somme of their last exhibitions: Palais de Tokyo (Paris, France, 2006), S.M.A.K. Stedelijk Museum voor Actuele Kunst (Ghent, Belgium, 2006), Dallas Museum of Art (Dallas, US, 2006), Walker Arts Center (Minneapolis, US, 2004), Renaissance Society (Chicago, US, 2007), National Museum of Art, Oslo (2009) and at the 2011 Venice Biennale where they represented the USA.
