Bel Falleiros is a Brazilian artist whose practice focuses on understanding how contemporary constructed landscapes (mis)represent the diverse layers of presence that constitute a place and how that affects those who inhabit them.  In Brazil she had her first solo show at CAIXA Cultural São Paulo and first residency at the Sacatar Institute in Bahia (2014).  Since arriving in the U.S., she has worked to create spaces for grounding and connecting people, stories, nature and place, at Pecos National Park, NM (2016), Burnside Farm, Detroit (2017), Santa Fe Art Institute’s Equal Justice Residency – in collaboration with Tewa Women United, NM (2018), Socrates Sculpture Park, NYC (2020), The Border Project, NYC (2021) and Panorama da Arte Brasileira, São Paulo (2022-3).  She was a More Art Engaging Artist Fellow (2021) and an artist-in-residence for the Dia Teens Program (2021-2). She is the founder of the group Manas Americanas (2018-current), a gathering group that connects women and non-binary people from Latin America living in New York and working with issues of culture, immigration and identity. Since 2019, she has been an art educator at Dia:Beacon and Escuelita en Casa, a project for immigrant Latino children living in Queens, NY. Beyond her studio practice, she participates in collaborative projects across the Americas connecting art, education and autonomous thinking.
