Artist Thessia Machado

Thessia Machado

Brooklyn, NY, USA


Thessia Machado is a visual/sound artist, instrument builder and performer whose work plumbs the materiality of sound and its effect on our shifting perceptions of space. She creates circumstances in which to mine the matter of her pieces for their innate physical properties and the sonic and visual relationships that can arise from their interactions. In performed works, the ensemble of things is augmented by a dynamically responsive and intentionally unpredictable human element. Electronics are almost always implicated.   Thessia’s sculptures, drawings and installations have been shown at The Drawing Center, NY, BRIC Arts, NY, The German-Japanese Cultural Center, Cologne, Cyberarts Gallery, Boston, District Gallery and SomoS Gallery in Berlin. She was awarded the Berlin Prize at the American Academy in Berlin and the Foundation for Contemporary Arts Artist’s Grant in 2017. In 2019 Thessia had a solo exhibition at the Arts Club of Chicago titled Toward the Unsound. Thessia has attended residencies at The MacDowell Colony, Homesession, Barcelona, Yaddo, Ipark, NARS Foundation, and the Irish Museum of Modern Art. And she is a recipient of fellowships from the New York Foundation for the Arts, Harvestworks, The Experimental Television Center and The Bronx Museum.
