Please join the Studio for Interrelated Media for Monika Bravo's artist lecture! Monika is a multi-media artist working in installation, and moving and still image. She recently was exhibited in the 56th Venice Bienielle and is living and working in New York City. See a bit from Monika's Bio below:

"I am mostly interested in process, and how through it I can decipher my relationship to space, not just physical, but emotional space...

I had a strong desire to become an astronaut after witnessing the first Moon landing on TV; few years later, I studied and learned several languages wanting to work as a simultaneous interpreter. At age 9, my mom bought me a SRL photographic camera, since I had not shown any promise in art classes, allegedly. At fourteen during a trip I took to Italy, I knew I wanted to study fashion design, and live far, far away from my native Colombia. After many turns and experiences, I spent time studying fashion and photography in Rome, Paris, London. I also lived in Athens until I took a two weeks trip to Colombia that lasted four years, where I taught photography. One day in 1994, I booked a one way ticket to New York City where I relocated to pursue a career in the Arts. I am now a multi-disciplinary artist."
