Taller Puertorriqueño is proud to present Another World Exists, new work by the New York City-based artist Marina Gutierrez. Gutierrez is a multidisciplinary artist who works in drawing, sculpture, performance, and installation. Her work is often community-based, conceptual, and interweaves historical events. With COVID 19 as a backdrop, her current work contends with the idea of connection and inspiration. She does this by examining her relationships and the conditions of her environment. The exhibition also brings together rarely seen early work.
Marina Gutierrez is an artist who combines community-based work, public, and studio arts. She was also the director of Cooper Union’s Saturday Program for nearly four decades, serving over 10 thousand NYC young people, encouraging many to enter the Arts. She has exhibited widely and in pivotal exhibitions such as CARIBBEAN: Crossroads of the World at the Queens Museum (N.Y.C.), Kréyol Factory at Parc de la Villette (Paris), at El Museo del Barrio (N.Y.C.), and created a solo installation at Project Row Houses (Houston, Texas). She is the recipient of Joan Mitchel, N.Y.F.A. and Mid-Atlantic Fellowships, L.M.C.C.’s Swing Space, Governors Island residency, and two N.Y.C. Arts Commission Design Awards for public projects in East Harlem’s De Burgos Center and Prospect Park’s Imagination Playground. Gutierrez is also co-author of “ART/ VISION / VOICE Cultural” published in 2005 by Columbia College/Maryland Institute of Art.
