See her works in progress and chat about her projects from the Peninsula Hotel, to Times Square, to the Issey Miyake store. Grimanesa Amorós is an interdisciplinary artist with diverse interests in the fields of social history, scientific research and critical theory. Through her art she conveys an ephemeral wonder, entrancing the viewers from all different backgrounds and communities to become agents of empowerment. She makes use of sculpture, video, and lighting to create works that illuminate our notions of personal identity and community.

She is a recipient of NEA Visual Artist Fellowship, NEA Artist Travel Grant, Art in Embassies Program of the U.S. Grimanesa Amorós has often drawn upon important Peruvian cultural legacies for inspiration for her large-scale light-based installations, which she has presented around the globe from Mexico, Tel Aviv and Beijing to New York's Times Square. She continues to be inspired from Peru's history for her art but she does not hold an essentialist or nostalgic view of her subject.

She often gives talks at museums and universities where her lectures not only attract future artists but students and faculty engaged with science and technology. She was a speaker at TED Global 2014. It feels somewhere in the art of Grimanesa Amorós, the past is meeting the future. Amorós has exhibited in the United States, Europe, Asia and Latin America.
