Georgina Valverde is a Mexican-born multimedia artist and educator whose work encompasses sculpture, performance, writing, and critical pedagogy. In her sculptural work, Valverde incorporates crafts and a wide range of everyday materials to create minimal sculptures that invite viewers to re-examine the familiar and explore the wealth of meanings inherent in material culture.
Since 2012, Valverde has broadened her practice to include curation, participatory art, and design. Examples of this include Caracol, an outdoor learning and creative space along the Burnham Wildlife Corridor in Chicago on which Valverde was lead artist. She is also the founder of the Society of Smallness and Documents Bureau, two platforms that invite audience participation and focus on curation and creative writing.
Valverde holds an MFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago and a BFA in Painting and Printmaking and BA in Modern Languages from James Madison University, Virginia. Valverde has exhibited locally, nationally, and internationally including at the MCA, the Hyde Park Art Center, the Evanston Art Center, and the National Museum of Mexican Art in Chicago; University of Texas Rio Grande Valley; and the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Tamaulipas and Centro Cultural Jaime Sabines, in Tuxtla Gutierrez, Mexico.
