"From a $240.000 Plastic-Bag Bliss-Out to a $3500 Surrealist Delight, Here Are 6 of the Best Artworks at the 2019 Armory Show". Artnet News.
March 7, 2019.

Oh, Armory Show. So far away, such lines, the bitter cold wind ripping in from the river the constant drama… but it’s always more fun than you expect, sales are a-poppin, and, hey, you get to catch up with old business-mixed-with-after-party-pleausre acquaintances you haven’t seen since the last art fair, what, a week and a half prior? This year, the added incentive for going to the piers was to support the fair’s directo, Nicole Berry, who somehow managed to deal with two crises in two years…

Feast & Famine. Mason Gross Galleries at Civic Square: Rutgers University. Newark, NJ, U.S.A.
March 28, 2019 - December 14, 2019.

Feast & Famine explores food as a social, political, and bodily phenomenon.

Feast & Famine gathers together works in a variety…

"The amazing Maria Fernanda Cardoso".
The Sydney Morning Herald.
November 16, 2018

What was once a backyard swimming pool is now a murky pond with a budding ecosystem. In a corner of the overgrown garden rests a stone roughly hand-engraved with “TIME IS”. The wild cacophony of nature continues inside with native flowers, a pair of preserved emu legs, butterfly wings, piles of rocks, animal skin, feathers and gum nuts scattered across benches, tables and side desks…

"Returning the gaze, with a vengeance".
The New York Review of Books.
July 8, 2018

In 1974, after a decade of life under military dictatorship, a Brazilian artist named Anna Bella Geiger made a video that runs sixteen minutes, eighteen seconds. It shows her head and upper torso against a white wall. Early on, she’s holding a white cat, bu at some point, it jumps out of frame. Her expression is neutral, maybe a bit tired. Her eyes don’t seduce or challenge the camera. Other artists, her…

"El final de un ciclo en Casas Riegner".
February 12, 2018

Desde el año pasado, la galería Casas Riegner se ha preguntado por su historia. Con el ciclo de exposiciones TIMELINE, que inauguró en agosto de 2017, han hecho una revisión de los artistas que han pasado por su espacio en una variedad de maneras: mirando etapas específicas de los expositores, conectando obras tempranas con obras actuales o simplemente compartiendo temas que los artistas han trabajado a lo largo del tiempo. El ciclo llega a su fin…

"Apología a lo perecedero".
Galería Casas Riegner
February 12, 2018.

Concluyendo el ciclo expositivo TIMELINE, Apología a lo perecedero pone en escena el trabajo de María Fernanda Cardoso y Danilo Dueñas a fin de explorar las diversas maneras en que ambos artistas enaltecen la materialidad de la obra plástica para otorgarle un carácter poético. En tanto que se abandonan al material perecedero y a su fuerza, Cardoso y Dueñas logran renovarlo, perpetuando su vida transitoria en obras de carácter minimalista…

"Making sense of artful science: The art of model making in the natural sciences".
A Working Model of the World.

As a visual artist and visual thinker, I believe in the power of images and objects to communicate concepts. As the old adage goes, ‘an image is worth a thousand words’. But as a sculptor, I also believe in the power of three-dimensional models, not only to create and embody knowledge, but also to trigger high-order thinking [1] in others, (including the maker herself). I want to propose that making things is essential in research and in the production…

"Dismembering the member: rethinking sexual difference in Maria Fernanda Cardoso's Exhibition 'It is not size that matters, it is shape'".
Journal of the Association for the Study of Australian Literature 15, 2: 1-13.

When the genome mapping of human sex chromosomes was completed in 2005, mainstream media reports on the findings claimed that the science provided evidence that women were a ‘different species’ to men. Many respondes to the findings  claimed that science provided evidence that women were a ‘different species’ to men. Many responses to the findings interpreted the research in ways that reinforced traditional patriarchal characterisations of ‘irreconcilable’ sexual differences and discounted the possibility of heterogeneity within and between species. This article focuses…
