The Cross Media group is pleased to present the artist in residency exhibition of Beatriz Albuquerque.
The Cross Media group started 2 years ago and comes from the idea by Judith Burton that all media should be explored through all media. Each artist, then part of the group, is entitled to explore a project with different mediums in the Columbia Studios and exhibit in one of the rooms of Macy Gallery for up 1 week.
The NYC based Portuguese visual and performance artist Beatriz Albuquerque is presenting a photo-graphic and 3D printing installation related to the documentation gathering of her project entitled Crisis of Luck. This project was presented last August at the 17ª Bienal de Cerveira: Arte: Crise e Trans-formação, Vila Nova de Cerveira in Portugal. Beatriz Albuquerque gained the Biennial award “Prémio Revelação“ with this Project.
Beatriz Albuquerque was awarded the Prémio Revelação, 17ª Bienal de Cerveira: Arte: Crise e Transformação (2013); the Myers Art Prize: mixed 
media, Columbia University, New York (2009) and the Ambient Series Performance Award, PAC / edge Performance Festival, Chicago (2005).
