Galvan received a bachelor’s degree from Brown University, an MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design, and a postgraduate fellowship with Duke University’s program in Latino/a Studies in the Global South. They have exhibited work at the National Humanities Center, the Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts, and internationally at the University of Coimbra (Portugal).
