Statement

 Cindy Santos Bravo received her MFA in the Program of Art from the California Institute of the Arts in Valencia, CA. Upon her graduation she was invited to show internationally, and continues to participate in exhibitions that place emphasis on process and experimentation. Her investigations explore the malleability of social relevance documented through lyrics, instrumentation and film. The visuals she creates are palimpsest in nature and range from montages of internet video clips to contextually specific designs in public spaces. Bravo was selected from the MFA program at CalArts to exhibit in Tel Aviv, Israel in Goods to Declare-MFA International Exhibition consisting of 15 MFA programs from 7 different countries. She was invited as artist-in-residence at Casa Vecina located in the Historical Center of Mexico City, which funds experimental art projects, community workshops and art lectures. She was also one of the 13 artists invited to the first MexiCali Biennial ‘06 held in MexiCali, Baja, CA at La Casa de Tia Tina. Her work is currently on display in the group exhibition Common Ground at the California African America Museum. She currently works as an art instructor in the Education Department at LACMA as well with CalArts' Community Arts Partnership program.
