Event Overview: Join this “in conversation” video conference with artist Maria Fernanda Cardoso, interviewed by MAAS curator Damian McDonald. Maria Fernanda Cardoso is an international artist, born in Colombia, currently living in Sydney, Australia. Graduating from Yale University with a Masters degree in Sculpture and Installation in 1990. She is known for her unconventional use of materials and subject matter inspired by animals. Cardoso exhibits widely in major museums and galleries in the US, Latin America, Australia and Europe. Her work is currently on view at MAAS Powerhouse in the Out of Hand exhibition, where she has used 3D printed to exhibit a vitrine of objects inspired by the natural world. The interview will allow ample opportunity for students to ask Maria questions about her art practice.
In 2003 Maria Fernanda Cardoso represented Colombia at the Venice Biennale, exhibiting a large installation of starfish woven together into a submarine landscape titled Woven Water. Other projects include shows at the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York, PS1, the San Francisco Exploratorium, the Centre Georges Pompidou, Fundacion La Caixa in Barcelona, the DAROS Foundation in Zurich and the Centro Reina Sofia in Madrid.
Her most known project, the Cardoso Flea Circus, was recently acquired by the Tate Gallery in London as part of its permanent collection. The Circus has been widely exhibited in festivals and museums around the world, and was performed at the Sydney Opera House as part of the Sydney Festival 2000. Here work is in the collections at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, Miami Art Museum, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Daros Collection, BLLA and Mambo Collections in Bogota, National Art Gallery, Canberra and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney. GRANTPIRRIE Gallery and ARC ONE Gallery represent her in Sydney and Melbourne.
