mujero (b. 1996, New York, NY) is a New York-based interdisciplinary artist and director. Their work honors queer/Caribbean identity through sculpture, video, and performance. Their practice is the result of a multitude of experiences that require the recognition of all their nuances in order to prompt a new way of viewing oneself, and in turn each other.
Their sculptural practice engages in found object, collage, and steel to enact and deconstruct the gendered/racial/Sexual signifieres embued in object and memory.
They are a proud child of Afro-Dominican Immigrants, and was born and raised in New York City.
They’ve directed films, music videos, and content for clients including SYRO, Deli Gallery, and various independent artists in New York.
They have exhibited in galleries and non-profit spaces including Sargent’s Daughters, New Women Space, Bortolami Gallery, Anna-Maria and Stephen Kellen Gallery, The Latinx Project at NYU, Westbeth, and Osseous Matter.
They hold a BFA in Fine Arts from Parsons School of Design.
