AIR residency

CHRISTINA PETTERSSON was born in Stockholm, Sweden and grew up in Miami, Florida. Her large scale drawings, videos, sculptural installations and group performances focus on the history and environment of Florida. Local residencies and exhibitions in non traditional spaces like Everglades National Park, Biscayne Nature Center and the Deering Estate reflect her lifelong passion for her hometown and its unique ecosystems. Public programming and local collaborations have become central to her art practice, engaging the audience in an understanding of their own world on a deeper level.
She is the recipient of a Knight Grant, Ellies Creator Award twice, Florida Cultural Consortium Fellowship thrice, and is a Fulbright Scholar. She has attended residencies such as Everglades National Park, the historic Deering Estate, The Studios of Key West, Yaddo and Ucross. She is in the collections of the Perez Art Museum Miami, Museum of Contemporary Art, Miami, Bass Museum of Art, Margulies Collection and the Four Seasons Hotel, among others. For her most recent nomadic, research based ARTSail residency, she illustrated a bilingual publication of urgent water issues in South Florida, available at Books and Books.
