About Heloisa Escudero
Former VisArts Bresler Resident Heloisa Escudero grew up in São Paulo, Brazil and moved to the U.S. in 1987. A citizen of Brazil, the U.S., and Italy, Escudero obtained a B.F.A. from the Massachusetts College of Art and an M.F.A. from the San Francisco Art Institute. She is an Exhibit Specialist at the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, D.C.
As an artist, Escudero is interested in conceptually-based art that is both tactile and interactive; recent projects focus on art that emphasizes the participation of the viewer. Her work, performances, and collaborations have appeared in national and international exhibitions and performance festivals, including Highline Park, New York City, N.Y.; SOMArts Gallery, San Francisco, Calif.; Supernova Pink Line Festival, Rosslyn, Va.; Dumbo Arts Festival and Governors Island Art Fair, New York City, N.Y.; and Arlington Art Center, Arlington, Va. She created the BackPack Gallery Project and collaborated with DJ Spooky (Paul D. Miller) on Terra Nova: Sinfonia Antarctica.
