Yvette Mayorga

Yvette Mayorga is an installation based artist. She uses confection, industrial materials, and the American board game Candy Land as a conceptual framework to juxtapose the borderlands of the U.S. and Mexico. The spaces in the “Candy Lands” of her work relate to immigrant utopian visions of the American Dream. The smell, decoration, and consumerist iconography in her work serve to critique the glut of violence at the border and beyond.

Mayorga has presented her work at The Vincent Price Art Museum, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, EXPO, Art Design Chicago, LACMA's PST, The Chicago Artists Coalition, The National Museum of Mexican Art, Gallery 400, & GEARY Contemporary.

Mayorga received her MFA in Fiber and Material Studies from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She was featured in The Guardian, Chicago Magazine, Art News, Artnet, ARTFORUM, Teen Vogue, Hyperallergic, and the cover of the READER.
