Multimedia artist Carola Bravo (born in Caracas, Venezuela; lives and works in Miami, FL) challenges the concept of migration as a norm and not a crisis by using the traditional image of a general traffic sign, showing silhouettes of herself carrying suitcases and a text with the phrase: Yield to Immigrants. The work addresses the tension between migration issues and the authority of public signs as civic markers. It also questions how manipulating traditional public signs alters their meaning, reminding us about the value of inclusion and our critical role in society.

Bravo holds a Ph.D. in Architecture (2016), an MA. in Art History (2003) from Universidad Central de Venezuela, and a BSc in Architecture from the University of the Arts, Philadelphia, USA (1987). Her work has been part of numerous group and solo exhibitions worldwide and has been featured in, among others, The Wall Street Journal, El Nuevo Herald, and ArtNexus Magazine. Her solo exhibitions in Miami include: “Inhabited Geometries” (2019) Bernice Steinbaum Gallery; “Blurred Borders” (2016) The Frost Art Museum; “We are where we are not” (2013) The Screening Room.
