Praxis is honored to announce that Chilean textile artist Josefina Concha E. (b. 1985, Santiago de Chile) is the recipient of Casa Wabi’s WOMAN ARTIST RESIDENCY AWARD 2023, with the support of Zona Maco.
This Artist Residency Program seeks to foster an exchange between contemporary art and the communities off the coast of Oaxaca.
The residencies promote multidisciplinary encounters between different generations that stimulate their experimental and creative concerns and contribute to the development of the cultural and social structure of the area. The program works by invitation, and the selection of artists is based on the quality of their creative production and their interest in generating projects or activities for the benefit or in collaboration with the communities.
To learn more about Josefina’s practice, we invite you to visit her solo exhibition at our Gallery in Chelsea, on view until June 2nd, 2023.
