GeoVanna Gonzalez is a Miami based artist. She was born and raised in Los Angeles, California where she received her BFA at Otis College of Art and Design. Her work desires to connect private and public space through interventionist, participatory art with an emphasis on collaboration and collectivity. Through her work she addresses the shifting notions of gender and identity, intimacy and proximity. Her most recent work performs these possibilities by collaborating with movement and sound based artists. These improvisations are political acts, analyzing and critiquing what it means to share public space as womxn, queer folks and people of color.

Her work has been shown at various institutions including The Institute of Contemporary Art, Station Contemporary Arts Museum, NSU Art Museum, The Bass Museum, Fringe Projects, and The Corcoran School of the Arts and Design. Gonzalez received awards and residencies from South Arts’ Southern Prize and State Fellowship, WaveMaker Grant, The Ellies Visual Arts Award, The South Florida Cultural Consortium, Santa Fe Art Institute Residency Santa Fe, Franconia Sculpture Park, Bemis Center For Contemporary Arts, and CAMPO. Her work is in permanent collections at Miami-Dade County Art in Public Place and University of Maryland Art Gallery.
