Event Overview: Join this “in conversation” video conference with artist Maria Fernanda Cardoso, interviewed by MAAS curator Damian McDonald. Maria Fernanda Cardoso is an international artist, born in Colombia, currently living in Sydney, Australia.

Cardoso exhibits widely in major museums and galleries in the US, Latin America, Australia and Europe. Her work is currently on view at MAAS Powerhouse in the Out of Hand exhibition, where she has used 3D printed to exhibit a vitrine of objects inspired by the natural world. The interview will allow ample opportunity for students to ask Maria questions about her art practice.
In 2003 Maria Fernanda Cardoso represented Colombia at the Venice Biennale, exhibiting a large installation of starfish woven together into a submarine landscape titled Woven Water.
