Paula Damasceno is a Brazilian visual artist and scholar, born in Rio de Janeiro City in 1975, and based in Greensboro, North Carolina since 2012.
Her artistic strategy uses historical and alternative photographic methods as departing points for the articulation of individual and collective subjectivities within histories and cultures. Collapsing techniques and materials, she also collapses ideas and perceptions to create art that invites wonder and critical thinking.
She holds a BFA with a concentration in Photography from the University of North Carolina Greensboro and is a Master of Library Science Candidate at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a concentration on photographic archives. Paula has exhibited at the Greensboro Project Space Greensboro, the Weatherspoon Museum of Contemporary Art, and the Southeastern Center for Photography. Her work Offerings has been granted the 2019 SPE Student Innovation Award and the First Place Award at the 2018 Light Factory Throwdown Portfolio.
