Abinadi Meza’s work draws upon a hybridized Mexican-American identity and explores themes of invisibility, ephemerality, disjunction and transformation. Meza’s installations, radio broadcasts, and public interventions are often participatory and focus on the poetic and conceptual implications of sound as a physical and social event. He is interested in creating transformative spaces and unusual narratives. He is currently a visiting artist at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and recently was an artist in residence at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, where he produced a large-scale sound installation entitled [Silencs], based upon ultrasonic frequencies and the streets of Dublin. His work is represented by Weinstein Gallery in Australia, Brazil, Croatia, Germany and Sweden.
