Artist

Sarah Zapata

Through textiles, Sarah Zapata examines how her personal experience points to larger societal constructs, intersecting theories of gender, cultural identity, and spirituality. As the daughter of an evangelical Christian mother and a Peruvian father, ethnicity and religion were at the center of her family dynamics during her upbringing in Texas. Zapata’s Peruvian heritage attracted her to textiles from a young age. The material’s malleability and historical context, in turn, pushed her in the direction of her current artistic practice.

Sarah Zapata has exhibited work at Performance Space New York; MATE Mario Testino Museum, Peru; and Deli Gallery, Brooklyn, among others.
