Paul Brach Lecture Series
Patricia Fernández Carcedo (b. 1980 in Burgos, Spain; lives and works in Los Angeles) studied at Saint Martins College of Art, University of California, Los Angeles, and received an MFA from California Institute of the Arts (2010). Fernández uses personal narrative, memory, omission and
abstraction to transmit histories and build connection
between people and places. She works primarily with painting, sculpture and
archives in order to investigate the inaccuracy of inherited memories and the subjectivity of experience. She has exhibited her work at Centro de Arte Caja de Burgos, Spain; LA><ART, Los Angeles; Clifton Benevento, New York; David Petersen Gallery, Minneapolis; Commonwealth and Council, Los Angeles; and Los Angeles Contemporary Archive (LACA). Her project A Record of Succession
was included in Made in L.A. 2012 at the Hammer Museum. In 2017, she was part of the California Pacific Triennial exhibition Building as Ever. She is a recipient of the Joan Mitchell Grant (2010), California Community Foundation Fellowship (2011), France Los Angeles Exchange Grant (2012), Lincoln City Fellowship (2015), and Pollock Krasner Grant (2017). She has been an artist resident of Fondazione Antonio Ratti (2013), 18th Street Arts Center (2014), Headlands Center for the Arts (2015), D-Flat, México, D.F. (2016), and Récollets, Paris (2016).
