Mexican artist Lua Rivera (b. 1989) “experiments to know and produces to survive”. For her, art can erase the boundaries between disciplines, promoting a free interaction between them and allowing the exhibition to transcend the walls of the gallery. As a visual artist she is distinguished by her continuous search and use of multidisciplinary resources such as intervention, collage, photography and textiles.

For Lua Rivera’s Natura Nurtura the artist continues to investigate the nesting processes of birds through the construction of different habitable “Nests.” Her installations will be made with photographs of the hummingbird anatomy and naked human dancers mixed with the essential materials hummingbirds use for nesting.

In Process @ The Watermill Center invites the community to engage with our resident artists on Saturday afternoons through open rehearsals, workshops, studio visits, lectures or artist talks.

Watermill’s mission is to provide artists and thinkers the opportunity to focus on the development of their work and practice. Artists-in-Residence have gone on to perform at venues and festivals including the New Museum, Roulette, PS122, American Realness, Clocktower Gallery, Performa, Vienna’s Donaufestival, Kampnagel in Hamburg, CPR – Center for Performance Research, and the Baryshnikov Arts Center.
