Andres L. Hernandez


Andres Luis Hernandez served as the Embedded Artist at Curie during the pilot year of SPACE, and has continued on as an advisor to the SPACE teams. Hernandez is a Chicago-based artist-designer-educator who works to reimagine the physical, social, and cultural environments we inhabit. Over the past two decades, he has worked within a variety of institutions to develop innovative art and design curricula; assist with research, installation, and educational activities for museum exhibitions; and organize collaborative, community-based artworks. His work explores ways that private and public spaces are used to promote and sustain injustice, often taking the form of archival research, writing, public programming, participatory workshops, creative place-making, and ephemeral interventions and performances within the built environment. Hernandez is a member of the Obama Presidential Center exhibition design team.
