Machado’s sculptures, drawings and sound installations have been broadly exhibited both in the US and Europe; most recently in a solo show at the Arts Club of Chicago in early 2019. She has performed with her handmade and modified intruments in both respectable institutions, such as the Drawing Center, The American Academy in Berlin, Issue Project Room, and in dilapidated basements and experimental spaces throughout Brooklyn and beyond. She was awarded the Berlin Prize at the American Academy in Berlin and the Artist’s Grant from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts in 2017. Machado has attended residencies at The MacDowell Colony, Homesession, Barcelona, Yaddo, Ipark, NARS Foundation, and the Irish Museum of Modern Art. She is a recipient of fellowships from the New York Foundation for the Arts, The Experimental Television Center and The Bronx Museum. In the fall of 2019 Machado was a visiting faculty member at Bennington College, VT, and in the the spring of 2020 she’ll be coaxing righteous/joyous noises from the students at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
