Allison Maria Rodriguez
Allison Maria Rodriguez seeks to draw attention to social and environmental issues which are often obscured in conventional systems of classification and representation. She challenges herself to find new ways of creating work, and to convey themes on the periphery of the mainstream. She is an interdisciplinary artist working predominantly in video installation, new media and large-scale public art, but often stretches beyond these mediums if a concept calls for another form. Most recently, her work aims to generate dialogue around climate change, species extinction, and political agenda.
Rodriguez received her BA in Language, Literature and Culture from Antioch College, OH, before pursuing an education in Studio Art at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, where she earned her MFA. Her work has been supported by grants from The CreateWell Fund, the Massachusetts Cultural Council, the Arlington Cultural Council, The Archie D. & Bertha H. Walker Foundation and Assets for Artists. She was awarded the grand prize at the 2017 Creative Climate Awards and a 2018 Earthwatch Fellowship to work as the resident artist on the Churchill Northern Studies Centre’s “Climate Change at the Arctic’s Edge” project. In addition to her extensive honors, grants, residencies and scholarships, she has shown her work extensively throughout New England. Some noteworthy showings include multiple Art on the Marquee projects at the Boston Convention Center, a solo installation entitled In the Presence of Absence with 13FOREST Gallery, and an upcoming solo show at The Boston Children’s Museum.
