Ismael de Anda III - Artist in Residence
Born in El Paso, Texas, Ismael de Anda III lives and works in Los Angeles, California. De Anda received his Master of Fine Arts degree from the California Institute of the Arts. Using what he deems “mutant practices,” including drawing, painting, sculpture, video, installation, and site-specific projects involving viewer participation, his work focuses on the re-interpretation of memory, inhabitation, and cultural history inspired by the pluralistic existence of growing up on the U.S./Mexico border and living in Los Angeles.
