Modified Arts is pleased and excited to present phICA_Trajectory Print Portfolio Project.

In early 2019, Phoenix Institute of Contemporary Art (phICA) launched a new initiative intended to showcase the richness and diversity of art being made in Maricopa Country, primarily the Phoenix Metropolitan area.  

In Summer, 2020, phICA sent out a call for work and received 45 submissions. Marisa Flórido Cesar, a highly respected curator, art critic, author, and university professor based in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil selected 12 artists from the submissions for the Project from images of representative art works submitted by artists for consideration.
Marisa Flórido Cesar earned a doctorate degree and a master’s degree in Visual Arts from the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ) and graduated from UFRJ with a degree in Architecture and Urbanism. She actively works in various facets of the Brazilian art world with strong interests in Art History, Art Theory, Contemporary Art, and the Art of Brazil. Before this project she was unfamiliar with Phoenix artists and their works, making the selection process challenging and unbiased yet informed by her vast experience in working with the visual arts throughout Brazil. 

The 12-print portfolio was be produced by Santo Press in Scottsdale, Arizona. The 12 artist selected by Marisa Flórido Cesar include:
Darrin Armijo-Wardle Bill Dambrova Brian Boner Rigo Flores Hector Fernando Garcia Shachi Kale Mary Meyer Ann Morton Christy Puetz Papay Solomon Chris Vena Vo Vera
