Sonia Almeida Painting
A through line in the practice of Almeida is the artist’s investigation into the ways that language is learned, shared and adapted through processes of fragmentation and multiplicity. The duality of meaning, communication on the verge of breakdown, resuscitated through context and the continual effort of interpretation serve as entry points on how to approach her work.
Almeida received her MFA from the Slade School of Fine Art, University College London and BFA from the University of Lisbon. She is a recipient of the 2015 Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grantand in 2017 of the James and Audrey Foster Prize.
Almeida is represented by Simone Subal Gallery in NYC and has exhibited extensively both national and internationally, including among others at the MIT List Visual Arts Center, Cambridge, MA, the ICA, Boston, the Serralves Museum, Porto, Portugal, Chiado 8- Culturgest, Lisbon, Portugal, DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and The Institute of Contemporary Art at MICA, Portland ME.
