Xavier Cortada

We’re excited to present Xavier Cortada as the next guest in our Conversations in Art + Innovations Series. Cortada has spent his career creating art installations and projects that highlight our various social issues, our environment and the impact of global warming. A 2007 National Science Foundation Antarctic Artist and Writer’s Program Fellow, Cortada used the moving ice sheet beneath the South Pole as an instrument to mark time; the art piece will be completed in 150,000 years.

The Miami-based artist has worked with groups worldwide to produce numerous collaborative art projects, including peace murals in Cyprus and Northern Ireland, child welfare projects in Bolivia and Panama, AIDS murals in Switzerland and South Africa, juvenile justice projects in Miami and Philadelphia, and eco-art projects in Taiwan, Hawaii, Holland and Latvia.
