Kenneth Pietrobono’s work animates the failure of language to adequately model the world in which we live. Using multi-platform projects, research, and collaborations, Pietrobono explores the inability to communicate complex systems as a key limit to affecting institutionalized and emergent power. Crafting experiential projects, Pietrobono’s work challenges normative political, social and economic models in pursuit of collaborative alternatives and remedy.
Working in New York City, Pietrobono is a first-generation American with his family immigrating from Santiago, Chile to the United States in 1971. Born 1982 and raised in Miami, FL., Pietrobono graduated with a Bachelor of Arts at Florida State University and is currently a member of Occupy Museums and an appointed member of the Citizens' Advisory Committee for the NYC Cultural Plan.
