Sarah Rosalena (Wixárika) is an interdisciplinary artist and researcher based from Los Angeles. Her work deconstructs technology with material interventions, creating new narratives for hybrid objects that function between human/nonhuman, ancient/future, handmade/autonomous, beyond power structures rooted in colonialism. They collapse binaries and borders, creating new epistemologies between Earth and Space. She is Assistant Professor of Art at UC Santa Barbara in Computational Craft and Haptic Media. She was recently given the Creative Capital Award, the LACMA Art + Tech Lab Grant, the Marciano Art Foundation Artadia Award, the Steve Wilson Award from Leonardo, the International Society for Art, Sciences, and Technology, the Carolyn Glasoe Bailey Art Prize, and the Craft Futures Grant from Center for Craft. She has recently presented her work at the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara, Clockshop, Frieze LA, and Blum & Poe Gallery. She has upcoming solo exhibitions with LACMA at Mount Wilson Observatory and the Columbus Museum of Art. Her work is in the permanent collection at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.
