Sula Bermúdez-Silverman

Sula Bermúdez-Silverman investigates and critiques social structures through a practice that examines economic, racial, religious, and gendered systems of power. In these new sculptures, the artist addresses early global trade, the beginnings of commodification, and economic hierarchies, using materials that reference some form of exchange—from transmission of disease to folk stories that later shaped the identity of the people of its regions.

Sula earned her BFA from Bard College (2015) and MFA from the Yale School of Art (2018). She has had solo exhibitions at the University of Texas at Austin, Project Row Houses in Houston, Texas, and the California African American Museum in Los Angeles, CA.
