Rodrigo Valenzuela’s Prole on the High Wall


Rodrigo Valenzuela (b. 1982, Santiago, Chile) completed an art history degree at the University of Chile (2004), then worked in construction while making art over his first decade in the United States, completing an MFA at University of Washington in 2012. Using staged scenes and digital interventions, Valenzuela’s photography, video and installation work is rooted in the contradictory traditions of documentary and fiction, often involving narratives around immigration and the working class. He is represented by Upfor Gallery in Portland, OR and Klowden Mann in Los Angeles, CA.
