Grimanesa Amorós

Grimanesa Amoros portrait

GRIMANESA AMORÓS is a Peruvian-born American multimedia creative whose work explores community connections intersecting history, technology, and architecture. She is a perceptual engineer, which enables her to create monumental sculptures incorporating various elements such as video, lighting, and electronic components to create immersive environments and connect the viewer to their surroundings. Technology compliments the concepts of her work without defining it—a medium of expression. She draws upon important cultural legacies for inspiration and presents societal issues like mental health.

Grimanesa Amorós' artwork ties the past, present, and future—pushing viewers to think beyond and challenging their initial perceptions.

Amorós is invited as a keynote speaker at museums, foundations, and universities, where her lectures empower young professionals, attracting future artists, students, and faculty working in architecture, science, and technology. Amorós has exhibited in the United States, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America. She was a guest speaker at TED Global, a recipient of the NEA Visual Arts Grants Fellowships, and has the distinction of being part of the '‘Art In Embassies Program of the U.S.'’ and the Civita Institute NE Chapter Fellowship Grant holder. Her work has been exhibited in numerous museums, including the Ludwig Museum, CAFA Museum, Katonah Museum, and Seoul National University Museum of Art. | @grimanesaamoros
