PSU MFA Studio Critical Conversation Series presents Ronny Quevedo

Ronny Quevedo (b. 1981 in Guayaquil, Ecuador) works in a variety of mediums including sculpture and drawing. His work "posits profound interconnections between the circular movements engendered by sport and the expansive pathways forged by the artist’s personal migration story from Ecuador to the Bronx," Ananda Cohen-Aponte writes in Hyperallergic. Quevedo holds an MFA from the Yale School of Art (2013) and BFA from The Cooper Union (2003). 

A recent exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art, Pacha, Llaqta, Wasichay: Indigenous Space, Modern Architecture, New Art, featured work by Quevedo. Solo exhibitions of note include no hay medio tiempo / there is no halftime at the Queens Museum (2017); Home Field Advantage at Casita Maria Center for Arts & Education, Bronx, NY (2015); and Ulama, Ule, Olé at Carol Jazzar Gallery, Miami, FL (2013). Quevedo is recipient of fellowships Queens Museum/Jerome Foundation Fellowship for Emerging Artists, A Blade of Grass Fellowship for Socially Engaged Art and an Emerging Artist Fellowship/Residency at Socrates Sculpture Park, among others. His numerous residencies include Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, NY; Kala Art Institute, Berkeley, CA; Core Residency Program at the Glassell School of Art, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, TX; Project Row Houses, Houston, TX; Skowhegan School of Painting & Sculpture, ME; and Lower East Side Printshop, NY.
