GeoVanna González is a Miami/Berlin-based artist. She was born and raised in Los Angeles, California where she received her BFA at Otis College of Art and Design. Her work desires to connect private and public space through interventionist, participatory art with an emphasis on collaboration and collectivity. Through her work she addresses the shifting notions of gender and identity, intimacy and proximity. Her most recent work performs these possibilities by collaborating with movement and sound-based artists. These improvisations are political acts, analyzing and critiquing what it means to share public space as womxn, queer folks and people of color. She has exhibited at Locust Projects, Miami, Florida; Station Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston, Texas; NSU Art Museum, Fort Lauderdale, Florida; Gr_und, Berlin, Germany; and Bass Museum, Miami, Florida. Gonzalez received awards and residencies from South Arts’ Southern Prize and State Fellowship; A WaveMaker grant from The Andy Warhol Foundation and Locust Projects; The Ellies Visual Arts award from Oolite Arts; The South Florida Cultural Consortium from Miami Dade County.
