Class of 2011

Natalia González Requena '11 is a Bolivian artist currently moving between the cities of Santa Cruz in Bolivia and Pittsburgh in the United States. She has MFA in Studio Art and a Certificate in the College Teaching of Art from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, Maryland. Prior to this, she obtained a licentiate in Fine Arts at the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile, in Santiago in 2002.

In her art, González Requena applies temporal and spatial considerations to an expanded notion of drawing. Through interactions with objects, cameras, and/or light, she employs diverse methods of drawing. These include installations, video performances, and drawings on paper.

She has participated in numerous exhibitions in Santa Cruz, La Paz, Sucre, Cochabamba, Santiago, Buenos Aires, Baltimore, Glen Echo, and a residency and exhibition titled Factory Installed at the Mattress Factory Art Museum in Pittsburgh (2011-2012).

In August 2012, she exhibited along with former graduate MFAST students, Phil Hessler and Billy Friebele, in the group show Delineadores (Delineators) at the Cultural Center Simón I. Patiño in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. The three artists also gave an artist talk and a drawing workshop. For the XVIII Biennial in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, she is currently exhibiting alongside Bolivian artist, Valentina Bacherer, with the awarded installation work, Borrowed Time.
