Ben Cuevas (he/him/they/them) is a Los Angeles based artist working in textiles, sculpture, installation, photography, video, sound, and performance. His practice underscores queer/feminist ideologies, with a focus on the condition of embodiment. Born in Southern California in 1987, he received a BA in Mixed Media Installation Art from Hampshire College in Amherst, MA (2010). He was artist in residence at the Wassaic Project in New York State (2010) and BoxoPROJECTS in Joshua Tree, CA (2019). As a queer, non-binary, HIV-positive, Latinx artist, identity directly influences his work, which he often uses to raise awareness highlighting the personal as political.
