Banner Art detail: Christián Pietrapiana, "WhatsGoingOn"
Since my work incorporates headlines and/or passages from news, they are self-explanatory. My work revolves around the climate crisis and other contemporary social issues that affect us all: impunity, toxic consumerism, misinformation, governmental global decisions, war, guns.
Originally from Buenos Aires, Pietrapiana lives and works in New York City. His work explores the vulnerability of human nature and its environment.
Pietrapiana has been awarded the Sheldon Bergh Award, was recently selected by the City of New York’s DOT Art Program to create a site specific outdoors installation in LIC, Queens, selected artist of the LTA Program of the Guggenheim Museum, Chashama Residency Program as well as The Space Program in LIC. His work has been exhibited at Exit Art NY, AES Gallery NY, Local Project, The Argentine Consulate in NYC, El Bodegon Cultural de Los Vilos Art Center in Chile and Centro Cultural Recoleta in Buenos Aires, among other venues and part of the Pfizer Corporate Collection, The Springfield Museum of Art and private collectors.
In the last few years he has incorporated the urgency of climate change into his practice, organizing exhibitions and workshops in order to create awareness inviting viewers to take action.
