FEATURED ARTIST

DONNA HUANCA

Donna Huanca

On view at the Marciano Art Foundation is Berlin-based, Bolivian-American artist Donna Huanca’s first large scale institutional exhibition OBSIDIAN LADDER. Using a unique mixture of painting, sound, installation, sculpture and performance, OBSIDIAN LADDER is intended to create a femme intervention into architectural spaces (in this case, the male-only legacy of the former Scottish Rite Masonic Temple). The show contains a heavily performative element with models who move throughout the space according to a general choreography given by Donna. Featured at MAF, just like all of her recent exhibitions, is her wide-ranging practice of painting extending from the bodies of the models to the surfaces of the sculptures and paintings – all creating a self-sustaining and densely referential ecosystem of material, surface, skin and color.
