Arturo Herrera

[b. 1959 - Present] View All Work

Arturo Herrera’s work encompasses a broad range of media, all of which are brought to bear in his collages. He assembles open-ended landscapes of the subconscious, where cartoon characters, news clippings and other fragments of images and text overlap and recombine. His felt hangings transform outlines of familiar images into sculptural abstractions.

Herrera has received many awards, including a Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst (DAAD) Fellowship. He has had solo exhibitions at Centre d’Art Contemporain, Geneva; Dia Center for the Arts, New York; Centro Galego de Arte Contemporánea, Santiago de Compostela; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; UCLA Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; and P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, Long Island City; among others.
