Meet Liliana Alfaro: Photographer

Updated: Feb 8, 2019

Marwen is dedicated to supporting the professional development of our teaching artists, because we believe it directly enhances the quality of instruction to educate our students. Since 2016, Marwen has offered teaching artists and studio facilitators an opportunity to use equipment, studios, and exhibition space through our Teaching Artist and Studio Facilitator Residency program.

The residency is a chance for artists to work on their craft, culminate their passion, and showcase their talent. An array of art mediums are represented, including ceramics, sculpture, digital and darkroom photography, painting, drawing/mixed media, printmaking, collage, sound, and installation.

During the residency — with an iPhone and a handful of questions — we went behind-the-scenes to learn more about each artist’s studio and process.

Liliana is not only a teaching artist and student facilitator, she’s also a Marwen alumna.

After seeing a lack of Latinx representation in contemporary art, Liliana was inspired to showcase her Salvadoran family. She photographs their everyday life, including moments of her mother and aunt taking care of her grandmother.

Liliana said the residency has given her the push and space she needed to continue doing what she loves.
