2023-24 Artist in Residence

Exhibition Website

Dec 23 2023 - Apr 28 2024

Norton Museum of Art

West Palm Beach, FL

Nora Maité Nieves is the Norton’s 2023-24 Mary Lucille Dauray Artist in Residence. 

In conjunction with her residency, Nieves will present an exhibition of her work including artworks she will create during her residency. Drawing inspiration from architecture encountered in both Puerto Rico and New York City, Nieves’ practice acts as a connector between worlds, combining fragments of decorative elements from her Caribbean roots, such as a ubiquitous modernist concrete block design, or a tile floor pattern from her childhood home, with those from the urban landscape she encounters daily. Exploring these themes of identity and belonging, Nieves comments on the sacredness of a single place within a complicated and evolving environment. 

This exhibition also features a single-channel video work that mixes abstracted visual motifs found in her paintings and sculptures.
