Carolina Cuevas is a Cuban American artist currently based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her work carries a sense of vulnerability and displacement borne of the conflicting ideals of family, home, and spirituality between her mixed American and Cuban upbringing. Through her work, she conveys nationality while bridging the identities of these two seemingly disparate worlds.
Her work has been included in group exhibitions at the Institute of Contemporary Art in San Francisco, Movimiento de Arte y Cultura Latino Americana, San Jose’s Quilts and Textile Museum, the International Ceramics Studio (Kecskemét, Hungary), and Kansas City Artists Coalition. She is the recipient of several awards, including the Murphy and Cadigan Award, Cultura Power Fellowship, Knight Foundation Award, McKeown Grant, Rita and Irwin Scholarship Award, and the Ox-Bow Workshop Recipient. Her work is in the San Jose Quilts and Textiles Museum permanent collection. Cuevas is pursuing her Master in Fine Arts from the California College of the Arts.
