Commons Lab Residency:
October 14 – December 13, 2019
Jimena Sarno is a multidisciplinary artist, educator and organizer. Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and currently living in Los Angeles, her experience as a South American immigrant informs her practice. She works across a range of media including installation, sound, video, text and sculpture. Her practice encompasses research and production as an exploration of power relations, consensus and social control. She is interested in how political constructs become normalized and internalized, shaping how we understand the world and our place in it.
Her work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions at LACE, Visitor Welcome Center, Grand Central Art Center, The Museum of Latin American Art, The Mistake Room, Human Resources, PØST, UCI Contemporary Art Center, Control Room, The Luminary, Centro Galego de Arte Contemporánea de Santiago De Compostela, Fellows of Contemporary Art, and Small Editions among others. She is the recipient of the 2015 California Community Foundation Fellowship for Visual Artists and the 2017 Foundation for Contemporary Art Emergency Grant. She is the organizer of analog dissident, a monthly discussion gathering that features work and work-in-progress by two invited artists.
