SACI alumna Lola Victor completes a 6-month residency at BNIM Architects.
Congratulations to Lola Victor, SACI Alumna Fall 2014/Spring 2015, for completing a 6-month residency at BNIM Architects in San Diego. During the residency, Lola created work for two shows, hosted numerous studio visits, and presented the resulting body of work in a final exhibition. She also spoke about the final exhibition and her practice at the San Diego Green Building Council summer social at BNIM Architects.
Lola also showed the resulting work in a two-person exhibition, titled “The Language of Abundance,” at Fresh Paint Gallery in La Jolla, CA, with artist Revati Singh from the UK. The exhibition, which opened July 12th, included eight large black and gold ink paintings on paper completed during the BNIM residency.
On the blog for the MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts and Writing at California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, Lola wrote about her experience at the residency:
"Without the time, space, and idea-bouncing gifted to me through my residency at BNIM San Diego, I would not be making the work I am at the current moment. Nor would I have effectively planned and produced two major exhibitions with such ease and grace. Because of my residency, I have begun to engage with a methodology of making that is so deeply intuitive and unique to me."

A visual artist and writer, Lola Victor is the founder of Beonesd Artist Collective and Ladies in Art NOLA. She is also the Director of the Arts for beautifulPB and the Pacific Beach EcoDistrict. In her practice, Lola creates material and written works of art that explore the power of story. Through processes of mysticism, Lola surrenders her corporeal form to channeled gestures and rituals, resulting in deeply sacred, symbolic, connective, and feminine works of art, working to create works of art that are as much a story as they are a question.
