Mariana Castillo Deball’s first solo show in a US museum will bring together a newly commissioned work and recent works never before seen in New York.

Through both artistic and academic research, Castillo Deball examines how knowledge and cultural heritage are produced, organized, and authenticated through diverse modes of storytelling, collecting, and classification. The artist’s process also emphasizes interdisciplinary collaboration, engaging archaeologists, novelists, ethnographers, historians, mathematicians, physicists, biologists, and paleontologists in her interrogations of subjects that span sciences and cultural histories.
