Ricardo de Lima is a Colombo-Venezuelan artist, technologist, curator, and DJ. Fusing the investigation of visual arts and material culture through video, sculpture, sound and programming into a hybrid art practice, De Lima limns the visibility of race, culture, class, gender, ethnicity, ability and sexual orientation. Collaboration is a principal locus of concern, serving as a common thread that unites varied platforms for exploring how artists, curators, cultural workers activate what Homi K. Bhabha, defines as thirdspaces: spaces created so that cross-disciplinary relationships can flourish.
He is the 2015 winner of the James and Audrey Foster Prize from the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston and was the Subsamson resident at Samson Projects in the South End in the winter of 2014-2015. De Lima received the Kara Fournier Fellowship at Brandeis University and was a resident artist of the Department of Public Imagination, a social practice fellowship, working with Chelsea Collaborative in Chelsea, MA in 2013. He also curates Spectacle, a collaborative performance space for experimental music and visual art, and Pico Picante, a monthly transnational bass music and culture event. // http://ricardodelima.org/
