Artist Presents – Daniel Mantilla
For RU's "Artist Presents" series, Colombian-born and NYC-based artist Daniel Mantilla shares developing work throughout his 2020-21 residency with RU and Artists Alliance Inc. Mantilla discusses his project Rock Paper Scissors in collaboration with Sprechgesang Institute, which premiered as a Zoom performance in 2020. Mantilla's practice is motivated by ideas of transition and instability, coming into fruition as paintings, drawings, and collapsible paper cut out compositions — easily transportable works of art for a nomadic era.

Daniel Mantilla’s residency is made possible through Residency Unlimited's ongoing partnership with Artists Alliance Inc.
