Maya Ciarrocchi

Bronx, USA


Maya Ciarrocchi is a New York-based interdisciplinary artist working across media in drawing, printmaking, performance, video, installation, and social practice. Through personal narrative, storytelling and embodied mapmaking her projects excavate disappeared histories as in Site: Yizkor, where architectural renderings of destroyed buildings, maps of vanished places, extant Yizkor books and audience contributed writings become sources for exploring the physical and emotional documentation of loss. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and she has received residencies and fellowships from the Bronx Museum of the Arts (AIM), LABA: a Laboratory for Jewish Culture, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (Swing Space), MacDowell, Millay Colony, New York Artists Equity, UCross and Wave Hill (Winter Workspace). She received a Foundation for Contemporary Arts Emergency Grant, a Film/Video Grant from The Jerome Foundation and funding from The Puffin Foundation. In addition to her studio practice, Ciarrocchi has created award winning projection design for dance and theater including the TONY award winning Broadway musical The Band's Visit. Ciarrocchi is the recipient of a 2021 grant from the Trust for Mutual Understanding and is a 2020 BRIO Award winner from the Bronx Council on the Arts. Her interdisciplinary project Gender/Power, which she co-directs with her collaborative partner Kris Grey, has been presented at Gibney, the Invisible Dog Arts Center, Jack, and Smack Mellon. Gender/Power has received funding support from The MAP Fund, the Mertz Gilmore Foundation, the Bay and Paul Foundation and the Franklin Furnace Fund and has been awarded residencies from the Baryshnikov Arts Center, and the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Process Space. Gender/Power was a participant in the 2019 Moving Towards Justice Cohort at Gibney. Ciarrocchi earned an MFA from the School of Visual Arts, New York, NY, and a BFA from SUNY Purchase, Purchase, NY.
