RAZA is a newborn multi-medium art collective formed by South American artists Valentina and Laura Caraballo, seeking to further their understandings of the self and world through art. The collective seeks to become a space where otherness is necessary and invited while exploring and learning new forms of creating, understanding, and unlearning.
Valentina Caraballo is a visual arts student interested in exploring the self and psyche as connectors of the general experience and as a means of understanding herself and others.
Laura Caraballo is an artist inspired by her Political Science background who seeks to externalize her ongoing discontent with the establishment through 2D imagery representing social issues.
The artists bring their different approaches and artistic skills together by agreeing on concepts with shared significance and utilizing the intersections of their creative expressions as guides.
I Lost the Keys to Apartment 302 was possible with the kind and continuous support of the Immigrant Council for Arts Innovation (ICAI) and The Bows.
