About the Artist

Wanda Raimundi-Ortiz is an interdisciplinary visual artist whose work pulls from 17th and 18th-century European portraiture, comic books, sketch comedy, folkloric dance, and installation to address race, bias, trauma, and healing. Her work has been exhibited in numerous venues such as the Smithsonian National Portrait Gallery, National Museum of Women in the Arts, Museum of Arts and Design, Garage Museum Moscow, Orlando Museum of Art, Corcoran Gallery of Art, Gyeongnam Art Museum, Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico; and at the Manifesta biennial, and the Performa biennial. Her work has been covered by numerous media outlets, including Art in America ArtNews, PBS, NPR, The New York Times, and The Washington Post. She earned her MFA from Rutgers University Mason Gross School of Art and also attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. She currently serves as board member for the College Art Association, where she’s committed to addressing invisible workloads on faculty of color.

About Entre/Between

This event is a part of our focus exhibition Entre/Between, a multi-sited exhibition presenting works that speak to Latinx histories living within and between the United States. Surveying a visual history from 1851 to the present, the exhibition consists of paintings, photos, sculpture, works on paper, and video exhibited at Crystal Bridges, while video works and performances will be featured at the Momentary.

Entre/Between is sponsored by Phillips.
