COLLABORATIVE DUO OF VISUAL ARTISTS

Patricia Cazorla & Nancy Saleme (aunt and niece duo) began working together in 2010 focusing on immigration issues--specifically undocumented farm workers in the US. Since then, they have awarded exhibitions and commissions such as the 2012 Juried exhibition at the Hammond Museum & Japanese Stroll Garden, North Salem, NY; 7th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art, Berlin, Germany; Art in City Hall, Philadelphia, PA; finalists of the First Jose Cuervo Traditional Mural Project, NYC; Armory Artsweek by Lehman College Art Gallery at Andrew Freedman Home, Bronx, NY; and The Fashion Center BID, NYC. Their work has been reviewed in Univision News, Remezcla, EFE Spanish international news agency, El Diario – La Prensa, Univision 41, Daily News- New York-Bronx, and Riverdale Press. Lately, they have been commissioned a public art piece for 2014 by Taller Puertorriqueño, Philadelphia, funded by the Knight Foundation and have been awarded with the NFA Artist/Ensemble Project Grant by NALAC (National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures.)
