Felipe Baeza MFA ’18 at 59th Venice Biennale

Felipe Baeza is one of 5 Yale artists being featured at the 59th exhibition of the Venice Biennale. Baeza’s work, alongside that of artists Belkis Ayón, Tatsuo Ikeda, and Cecilia Vicuña, are being used for the graphic identity of the 59th Venice Biennale exhibition. 

Baeaza a visual artist who lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.  He received a B.F.A. from The Cooper Union and an M.F.A. from Yale University in 2018. Born in Guanajuato, Mexico, Felipe Baeza incorporates painting and printmaking to examine how memory, migration, and displacement work to create a state of hybridity and fugitivity. Baeza’s art practice aims to imagine structures and possibilities for the self-emancipation of the fugitive body that lives in and is persistently subjected to hostile conditions.

See a collection of Baeza’s work at this Joan Mitchell Foundation webpage.

The 59th exhibition of the Venice Biennale opens April 23rd. On April 21st, the Yale Alumni Art League and the Yale School of Art will hold a reception and talk in celebration of alumni and faculty featured in the exhibition. Register here.
