Johanna Unzueta


Johanna Unzueta (Chile, 1974) lives and works in New York. She received her art degree from Universidad Católica de Chile. Through sculptures and installations made of felt, fabric, wood and cardboard, her work questions labor and its technological, historic and social impacts on the human condition. In each work, she combines elements of craft production and industrialization, considering the different ways in which materials and structures can be manipulated. Unzueta also works in photography, video, serigraphy, and drawing and, since 2009, has worked in editorial design and production of artist publications, alongside Felipe Mujica.

Solo shows include: Wintergarden, Christinger De Mayo, Zürich (2013); Snowfields, Die Ecke Arte Contemporáneo, Chile (2010); and Iron Folklore, Queens Museum of Art, New York (2009). Her work has also been exhibited in several group shows including the X Berlin Biennale, Berlin (2018); the London Museum, London Ontario (2016); David Rockefeller Center for Latin American Studies, Harvard University (2012); Museo del Barrio, New York (2011); Museo de Arte de Zapopan, Guadalajara (2010); Museu de Arte Contemporânea da Universidade de São Paulo, São Paulo (2010); and A Gentil Carioca, Rio de Janeiro (2007).
