Visiting Puerto Rican Artist-in-Residence, Glorimar Marrero Sanchez presents her collected works for a closing exhibition. The exhibition will feature a collection of still photography and three short films—Revolt in the Roosevelt, Biopsy, and The Phenomenom. The screenings will be followed by a brief Q+A session and a short reception.

This program is in conjunction with the Hurricane Irma and Maria Relief Initiative, which invited Puerto Rican scholars, faculty, and artists to campus. Supported by the Provost’s Office, UChicagoArts, and the Center for the Study of Race, Politics, and Culture.

About the Artist:
Bayamón, Puerto Rico (1978) – Glorimar is a multidisciplinary artist and filmmaker whose work relates to grief, identity, and colonialism. In 2016 she directed the shortfilm Biopsy (Best Director Award in the European Film Festival in Puerto Rico and Honor Mention at the 21 Islands International Short Fest in New York). She also directed the short film Still. In 2017 she premiered Revuelo at Roosevelt, her first piece of video art commissioned by the Institute of Puerto Rican Culture and the National Endowment for the Arts. Glorimar is currently working on the advanced development of her first feature length film La Pecera (Fish Tank). She is also working in the post-production of the documentary Por el barrio, and in the development of Juana Matos, a multimedia installation at the community of Juana Matos in Cataño, Puerto Rico. Both projects are commissions by the Museum of Contemporary Art of Puerto Rico. In 2018 she was selected for an artistic residency at the University of Chicago (May to July 2018).

La artista-en-residencia, Glorimar Marrero Sánchez, presenta parte de su cuerpo de trabajo en una proyección compuesta de una serie de foto fija y tres cortometrajes – Revuelo en la Roosevelt, Biopsia y El Fenómeno (trabajo en progreso). La proyección será seguida por una sesión de Q+A y una recepción breve.

Esta actividad es parte de una iniciativa de alivio cual invitó unos estudiantes, profesores, y artistas puertorriqueños a la universidad. Apoyado por la Oficina de Provost, UChicagoArts, y el Centro para el Estudio de la Raza, Política y Cultura.
