Artist Residency,  El Futuro Es De Todos

When you imagine our future, what do you see?  Paola uses this question as the starting point to examine the impact of the Census in our communities. This residency is in dialogue with the community and findings will inform a series of images that depict our collective vision of the future. 

This residency is in partnership with Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA).


We encourage you to follow this artist residency and participate in the dialogue through our social media channels. Your contributions to the dialogue will inform a series of images created by Paola de la Calle that depict our collective vision of the future.

Artist Bio:
Paola de la Calle (b. 1992) is a Colombian-American interdisciplinary artist whose work examines home, borders, identity, and nostalgia. Her practice is a multidisciplinary exploration that ties together her family’s migration, personal memories, as well as historical and political narratives through the use of textiles, printmaking, and collage. Her work has been exhibited at Crosstown Arts, Nave Gallery, Jay Etkin Gallery, Root Division, Galeria de la Raza, Compound Gallery, and SOMArts. In her recent work de la Calle unpacks cultural elasticity by combining digitally printed fabric, hand sewing techniques, and text to investigate the symbolism within everyday objects.

She is a graduate of the New York Foundation of the Arts Immigrant Artist Program in 2019 and a current artist in residence at Galeria de la Raza. Her work has been published in Mujerista Co. issues III and IV and Graphite Journal. Her studio practice has been featured on Hyperallergic’s “A View from the Easel”.

She is currently based in San Francisco, CA.
