Sonia Almeida

Sonia Almeida is an artist working in Boston and a Fine Arts Assistant Professor at Brandeis University. A through-line in her practice is the artist’s investigation into the ways that language is learned, shared, and adapted through processes of fragmentation and multiplicity. The duality of meaning, communication on the verge of breakdown, resuscitated through context, and the continual effort of interpretation serve as entry points on how to approach her work. Almeida received her MFA from the Slade School of Fine Art, University College London and BFA from the University of Lisbon. She is a recipient of the 2015 Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant and of the 2017 James and Audrey Foster Prize. Almeida is represented by Simone Subal Gallery in NYC and has exhibited extensively both nationally and internationally, including among others at the MIT List Visual Arts Center, the ICA, Boston, the Serralves Museum, Porto, Portugal, Chiado 8- Culturgest, Lisbon, Portugal, DeCordova Sculpture Park, the  Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and The Institute of Contemporary Art at MICA, Portland ME.
