Felipe Meres  Photography Co-Chair
Felipe Meres is a Brazilian-born, NYC-based artist. His photographs, films and sculptures engage relationships between systems of representation and the material realities they intend to capture. Often exploring the limits of tools used to classify and organize aspects of the world in particular moments in history, Meres’ work invites the viewer to reconsider the patterns and forms we create to make sense of and regulate the objects, bodies and behaviors that surround us.

He holds an MFA from the Milton Avery School of the Arts at Bard College, NY and a PhD in Cultural Anthropology from The New School, NY. He is the recipient of the 2016 Cisneros Fontanals Art Foundation Grants & Commissions Award and of the 10th Tom of Finland Foundation Emerging Artist Grand Prize. Felipe is currently at work on his first book, while teaching at Cooper Union.
