MARIA CHAVEZ

Born in Peru, sound artist Maria Chavez currently resides in Brooklyn, New York. Chavez's sound installations and live performances have focused on the paradox of time and the present moment, with many influences stemming from improvisation in contemporary art. Her work has been recognized by the Jerome Foundation, which awarded her the Emerging Artist Grant by New York’s Roulette Intermedium in 2008. In 2009, she became a recipient of the Van Lier Fellowship which is generously offered to young sound artists by The Edward and Sally Van Lier Fund of the New York Community Trust.

She has traveled extensively, sharing the stage with Pauline Oliveros, Thurston Moore, Lydia Lunch, Phil Niblock, and Otomo Yoshihide to name just a few. She has performed in venues including the Contemporary Arts Museum in Bordeaux, France; the Akademies der Kunste in both Vienna and Berlin; and Sonoteca in Lima, Peru. She was an artist in residence with the Merce Cunningham Dance Company and the DIA:Beacon Museum and worked with Christian Marclay and the Whitney Museum of American Art in NYC as part of Christian Marclay: FESTIVAL. She most recently finished an artist in residence program for the Summer of 2011 at the Clocktower Gallery, NYC.
