Laura’s research-based art practice is grounded in issues affecting glocalized (global / local) communities marked by environmental, economic, political and gender structures. Working with an intersectional focus, Curry frames her work with the diverse location-specific narratives that link non-conventional methods of research and activism into her practice she names radical research.
In 2020, Laura began an Artist/ Researcher in residence with CIESAS Noreste, Monterrey Mexico, which focused on gender and mobility. The global pandemic interrupted Laura’s work and displaced her from Monterrey. As a consequence, Laura considered the meaning of “residence” “mobility” and “access” in a changing world where these words are no longer abstractions.
Laura is re-instated in 2022 as an Artist / Researcher in residence with CIESAS Noreste and continues her examination of “residence”, “mobility”, and “access” as environmental impact realities.
