about Karen Miranda Rivadeneira

Nueva York (Estados Unidos), 1983

Karen Miranda-Rivadeneira is an Ecuadorian-American photographer. She is a graduate from the School of Visual Arts in 2005. During that time, her early focus was on performance art, and trance states. Following these interests, she has collaborated with indigenous communities and her relatives to create photo-based projects. From the Mam to the Mandaeans, she has spent more than a decade living between the Amazon, the Andean mountains and NYC. She is interested in digging for psychic gold, in threading personal and collective narratives exploring the peripheries of memory, storytelling, myth and perception to encounter the myriads of ways in which photography can create platforms for diversion and reflection.

Rivadeneira has received numerous national and international awards; she is the recipient of the Photographic Fellowship at the Musee du Quai Branly in Paris, NYFA Fellow in Photography in NYC, Individual Artist grant by the Queens Council of the Arts. She has participated at the Latin American Forum in Sao Paulo, the Photo annual festival in Beauvais, France, and exhibited at institutions such as the Smithsonian Portrait Gallery, and the Americas Society. Her work is collected by the Museum of Fine Arts Houston among other private institutions and collectors.
