The 12th Shanghai Biennale: Proregress

Jennifer Allora & Guillermo Calzadilla

Jennifer Allora (b. 1974) and Guillermo Calzadilla (b.1971) are a collaborative duo of visual artists who live and work in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Their work critically addresses the intersections between the cultural, the historical and the geopolitical. The multidisciplinary nature of their interventions is echoed by an expanded use of the artistic medium that includes performance, sculpture, sound, video and photography. They were the United States Representatives for the 2011 Venice Biennale.
