ceiba: reconsidering ephemeral spaces

In ceiba: reconsidering ephemeral spaces, William Cordova focuses on temporality and the ability to capture past and present moments that at times may not seem to be—but are, indeed—related to the collective human experience. With this project, Cordova threads, constructs, and overlaps multiple narratives fused together to propose alternative perspectives with the goal of gaining a new one that can allow for a reconsideration of the known physical and psychological terrain.

Cordova was born in Lima, Peru, and earned his Master of Fine Arts from Yale University in 2004. He has participated in multiple artist residencies, including Artspace, San Antonio, Texas; The Core Program, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston; and The Studio Museum in Harlem, New York. He has presented numerous solo exhibitions throughout the United States and internationally, and has participated in group exhibitions at The Museum of Modern Art and PS1 in New York and the Menil Collection in Houston. He was also included in the 2008 Biennial at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.
