Hear directly from artists about the processes, ideas, and obstacles that inform their work.

Jennifer Allora and Guillermo Calzadilla have been collaborating since 1995, exploring ideas of authorship, nationality, borders, democracy, and global society. They utilize sculpture, photography, video, performance, and sound to create metaphors and experiments that explore the relationship between an object and its meaning.

They have shown internationally, including representing the United States at the 2011 Venice Biennale, and participated in numerous residencies including MoMA PS1 and a DAAD residency. Jennifer Allora was born in Philadelphia and received her MS from MIT in 2003. Guillermo Calzadilla was born in Havana, Cuba, and received his MFA from Bard College in 2001.
