Serena Perrone employs a range of techniques, from printmaking and drawing to photography and writing, to reflect on personal mythologies, examine differing forms of nostalgia, recount stories of destruction, regeneration, transition, enchantment and disenchantment, and capture images of the synchronistic and uncanny ways that magic and wonder are encountered in liminal spaces. Her work has been exhibited at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the International Print Center New York and is included in the permanent collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, the New York Public Library, Yale University Art Gallery, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Detroit Institute of Arts, the Smith College Museum of Art, the RISD Museum, the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the Library of Congress.
Perrone was nominated for a Pew Fellowship in 2017 and has received grants from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, the Santo Foundation, the William J. Cooper Foundation and the Vermont Studio Center. She is represented by Cade Tompkins Projects. She is also co-creator and director of Officina Stamperia del Notaio, an artist’s residency and printmaking studio in Sicily.
