Carissa Rodriguez lives and works in New York City and has exhibited internationally since the mid-1990s. Her work reflects on the material and social conditions through which art is produced, reproduced and received.
Encompassing cinematic, photographic, and sculptural work, her exhibitions present complex and at times personal narratives that reveal dynamics between artist, audience and institution. These artistic concerns are evident in her recent solo exhibitions: The Maid, SculptureCenter, New York (2018) and MIT List Visual Arts Center, Cambridge (2018); I'm normal. I have a garden. I'm a person at CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts, San Francisco (2015); La Collectionneuse, Front Desk Apparatus, New York (2013); and Carissa Rodriguez, Karma International, Zurich, Switzerland (2012); Busque El Ghost, House of Gaga, Mexico City (2010); and Cherchez La Ghost, New Jerseyy, Basel (2009). Early in her career, Rodriguez exhibited at American Fine Arts, Co., New York (1999 and 1996). She was a core member of Reena Spaulings Fine Art, New York from 2004 to 2015.
