Guadalupe Maravilla is a transdisciplinary visual artist, choreographer, and healer. At the age of eight, Maravilla was part of the first wave of unaccompanied, undocumented children to arrive at the United States border in the 1980s as a result of the Salvadoran Civil War. As an acknowledgement of his own migratory past, Maravilla grounds his practice in the historical and contemporary contexts of immigrant culture. He has exhibited and performed in major museums such as Whitney Museum of American Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Institute of Contemporary Art Miami and many more. In 2019 Maravilla was awarded a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship.
