Nancy Valladares


Nancy Dayanne Valladares is an interdisciplinary artist from Tegucigalpa, Honduras. Collecting and reclassifying images and objects, her work attempts to trace the ecosystems of power embedded within modes of representation and image making technologies. Drawing from the historical entanglement between filmmaking, photography, and colonial consciousness, her work is a reconfiguration of storytelling and cultural memory.

Valladares completed her Bachelor in Fine Arts from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago where she was the recipient of the Fred Endsley Memorial Fellowship and a Distinguished Scholar Award.

Her work has been exhibited at The Art Institute of Chicago, Sullivan Galleries, SUGS Gallery X, ExFest Film Festival, The Research House for Asian Art, Columbia College, and Roman Susan Gallery in Chicago.
