About Artist Talk: Liliana Guzmán
This talk will take place in the IU Cinema Lower Lobby; the film adaptation of Virus Tropical will screen in the Cinema at 7pm following the talk.
Liliana Guzmán is a photographer and painter whose artwork entwines topics of the body, memory, sexuality, and the hidden landscapes of the self. In May of 2021, Liliana completed her MFA in Photography at the Eskenazi School of Art, Architecture + Design at Indiana University Bloomington. Her photographic practice incorporates a wide range of techniques and mediums from film photography and alternative processes to digital photography, painting, and drawing. Through the recurring subject matter of hands, touch, and gesture, Liliana’s artwork expresses touch as not only a formative and intimate experience but as one that establishes both internal and external connections within ourselves and those around us.
Most recently, her series Next to Myself exhibited at the Amalie Rothschild Gallery in Baltimore, Maryland, in May of 2022. Upon receiving the Blue Sky Gallery Award from Photolucida’s Critical Mass 2022, Next to Myself will also be exhibited at the Blue Sky Gallery in Portland, Oregon, in April of this year and at Candela Gallery in Richmond, Virginia, in May. Next to Myself was also chosen in the 2021 Lenscratch Student Prize: 26 to Watch.
