Experimentation on Displacement & Identity


Nayari Castillo Cropped

Nayarí Castillo comes from a new generation of Venezuelan artists. To generate a coherent body of work and a thoughtful set of questions on the experience of identities are what drives her proposal.

A Look Inside:

Castillo’s proposed project, Postcards from the Post Revolution: Notations from a PTSD Mapping, investigates sensible processes of contemporary transformation in a series of drawings that will be exhibited at the CIFO Art Space. In her process, science and art have come together in an amalgam of knowledge. A project with a year of research represents an ideal length for a deep experimentation methodology, resulting in a contemporary statement on displacement, diasporas and identity.


Born Venezuela, 1977
