Sarah Rodigari tours SOMA Summer in Mexico

November 28, 2014 | Cultural Fund

Interdisciplinary artist Sarah Rodigari spent two months participating in the 2014 SOMA Summer program in Mexico City, with the assistance of the Copyright Agency’s Career Fund.

The intensive, hands-on residency consisted of workshops, studio visits and symposiums with artists and curators from around the globe and culminated in an open studio exhibition showcasing participants’ work.

“My time in Mexico was deeply rewarding and rich with new opportunities to develop my art practice in a global context,” Sarah says.

Throughout the program, Sarah connected with well-regarded artists including Harrell Fletcher, artist group Superflex and curator Magalí Arriola. Following SOMA Summer, she was invited to present her performance
The Inner Life of Ghosts: Presence Felt with Immaterial Realities at the MARSO gallery in Mexico.
