IVAN MONFORTE

New York-based Ivan Monforte, born in M?©rida, Yucat??n, M?©xico in 1973, completed a residency at Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in 2004. He received a B.A. from the University of California, Los Angeles in 1996, and an M.F.A. from New York University in 2004. Monforte??ôs interdisciplinary practice uses simple gestures and materials, as well as emotional language and content, as strategic tools to address themes of loss and mourning; representations of gender, race and sexuality; and the pursuit of love. He has shown at Bronx Museum of the Arts, New Fest 2005, Haven Artspace, and Longwood Art Gallery, all in New York; MAK Center for Art and Architecture, Los Angeles; and California Institute of the Arts, Valencia.
