Alejandro Almanza Pereda – Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship

Alejandro Almanza Pereda has been awarded a fellowship, from an international pool of candidates, to conduct research at the National Air and Space Museum as part of the 2020 Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship program.

Based on the exploration of weightless contexts, the artist’s project will focus on investigating the underwater training used for space walks, the history of neutral buoyancy experiments and the limitations of the still life tradition.
