Our latest New Yorker of the Moment is Grimanesa Amoros who recently connected with us here at AANY for a short interview. The Peruvian-born interdisciplinary artist is known for her other-wordly art installations, often focused on personal identity and the interplay between humans and their environments.

Eternally prolific, she was just in Rio de Janeiro for a TEDGlobal conference in which she was a featured speaker. She also debuted her latest spectacular light installation, “Big Brother”, while she was there. The piece will now become a traveling exhibit moving between Brazil, Rome and Argentina over the next 8 months.

Amoros’s previous public art installations have been featured everywhere from Tribeca to Harlem and even Times Square making her an integral part of the city’s canvas. So we at AANY were thrilled to be able to ask her a few questions and it is with pride that we present that short exchange below.
