Hoesy Corona (Baltimore, MD) is an emerging and uncategorized queer Mexican artist living and working in the United States. He creates narratives centering marginalized individuals in society by exploring wildly fantastical worlds through a process based practice. His work is executed across a variety of media while considering what it means to be a queer latinx immigrant in a place where there are few. He choreographs large scale performances and installations that oftentimes silently confront and delight viewers with some of the most pressing issues of our time. Reoccurring themes of queerness, race/class/gender, nature, isolation, celebration, and the climate crisis are present throughout his work. His colorful sculptural works fitted to the human body have been presented at The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Transformer DC, The Baltimore Museum of Art, The Walters Art Museum, Gilcrease Museum, and The Reach at The Kennedy Center. Recent honors include The Municipal Art Society of Baltimore Artist Travel Prize, a Tulsa Artist Fellowship, a Merriweather District Artist in Residence, a Halcyon Arts Lab Fellowship, a Ruby’s Artist Grant, a Maryland State Arts Council Individual Artist Award, and an Andy Warhol Foundation Grit Fund Grant. In 2020 he was a finalist for the Janet & Walter Sondheim Artscape Prize.
