Hoesy Corona is an uncategorized queer Latinx artist of Mexican descent living and working in the United States. Using a variety of media spanning installation, performance, and video, Hoesy develops otherworldly narratives centering marginalized individuals in society that investigate what it means to be a queer Latinx immigrant in a place where there are few. He choreographs large-scale performances and installations that oftentimes silently confront and delight viewers with some of the most pressing issues of our time. Reoccurring themes of queerness, race/class/gender, nature, isolation, celebration, and the climate crisis are present throughout his work. Hoesy has exhibited widely in galleries, museums, and public spaces in the United States and abroad including recent solo exhibitions Sunset Moonlight (2021) at The Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, MD, Earthly Mirage (2021) at the Hardesty Arts Center in Tulsa, OK, and Alien Nation (2017), a large scale performance at The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, DC. He lived in Mexico, Utah, and Wisconsin, before moving to Baltimore, MD in 2005 to establish a professional practice in the arts. He is a recent GKFF Artist Fellow 2019 & 2020 in Tulsa, OK, and is a former Halcyon Arts Lab Fellow 2017-2018 in Washington, DC. In 2021 he was the recipient of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation’s MAP Fund Grant.
