Light Work is pleased to present American Type, a solo exhibition by artist Rodrigo Valenzuela.

Rodrigo Valenzuela completed an art history degree at the University of Chile in 2004 and then worked in construction while making art over his first decade in the United States, receiving an MFA at the University of Washington in 2012. Using staged scenes and digital interventions, Valenzuela’s photography, video, and installation work are rooted in the contradictory traditions of documentary and fiction, often involving narratives on immigration and the working class. Valenzuela participated in Light Work’s Artist-in-Residence Program in August 2017.
