Tamara Becerra Valdez

Born and raised in South Texas, Tamara Becerra Valdez is an artist who works at the intersection of archives, oral histories, material studies, and ecology. She received an MFA from the University of Illinois Chicago in 2019. Tamara's sculptures and relief works require slow, meticulous processes of hand fabrication and technique. She frequently works with discarded materials to comment on legacy and loss, from family histories to ecological devastation. She has participated as an artist and researcher in national and international multidisciplinary projects focused on art and ecology, including: Political Ecology: Platform Chicago, Tender House Project, and the working groups: The Anthropocene Campus and The Whole Life Academy with the Haus der Kulturen der Welt (HKW) in Berlin. Tamara is also a gardener, seed saver, and a collective member at El Paseo Community Garden in Chicago.
