About Mariana Ramos Ortiz
Mariana Ramos Ortiz (she/her/they/them | b. 1997) is an interdisciplinary artist working between San Juan, Puerto Rico, and Providence, Rhode Island. Their practice revises the imperial and colonial relationship the United States has imposed on Puerto Rico. Their recent work articulates relationships between legibility as a remnant of colonialism, play as a tactic for resistance, and how these strategies construct the experience and perceptions of the colonial subject and landscape.
Ramos Ortiz graduated with a BA from the University of Puerto Rico - Río Piedras in 2019 and received an MFA in 2021 from the Rhode Island School of Design. They have been featured in exhibitions at Brown University, RISD Museum, Late Curatorial, University of Arizona Poetry Center, Utah State University, Atlantic Center for the Arts, Plataforma Caníbal, WaterFire Arts Center, Guatibirí Gallery, among others. Ramos Ortiz is currently a 2021-2022 Kala Art Institute.
