Best Art Worker

Soledad Salamé

Posted 9/16/2009

You can't always judge a local artist's work by where she lives. Take Baltimore-based Chilean native Soledad Salamé, for example. In the past year, she installed her "Where Do You Live?" project, which explored how global warming is affecting the Maryland coastline, at the Contemporary Museum during the first part of the Future Farmers' exhibition The Reverse Ark; is included in the Contemporary's current Fax exhibition; and has a new solo show coming up next spring at the Goya Contemporary. But she's an artist who works globally. She took part in the 2008 traveling exhibition Moving Towards a Balanced Earth: Kick the Carbon Habit, organized by the Natural World Museum and the United Nations Environment Programme that debuted at the Te Papa Tongarewa Museum in Wellington, New Zealand, in which she appeared alongside international artists such as Ik-Joong Kang and Lars Siltberg; the exhibit has since traveled to Korea in 2009. Her work is currently on view in the Joyas latinoamericanas exhibition at Miami's ArtSpace/Virginia Miller Galleries alongside pieces by such contemporary Latin American artists as Ramón Oviedo and Francisco Toledo. And she chooses to make Baltimore her home base.
