Artist Presents – Daniel Mantilla

For RU's "Artist Presents" series, Colombian-born and NYC-based artist Daniel Mantilla shares developing work throughout his 2020-21 residency with RU and Artists Alliance Inc. Mantilla discusses his project Rock Paper Scissors in collaboration with Sprechgesang Institute, which premiered as a Zoom performance in 2020. Mantilla's practice is motivated by ideas of transition and instability, coming into fruition as paintings, drawings, and collapsible paper cut out compositions — easily transportable works of art for a nomadic era.

Watch the video below.

Daniel Mantilla’s residency is made possible through Residency Unlimited's ongoing partnership with Artists Alliance Inc.

The 2020 NYC Artist Residency Program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the city council and generous support from individual donors.
