Adriana Salazar is a Colombian visual artist-researcher based in Mexico City. Her work views the boundaries between life and death, nature and artifice, and the human and non-human as blurred lines, when situated in specific contexts. She has exhibited her projects in venues such as CA2M (Spain), Passerelle Centre d’art contemporain (France), Muca Roma (Mexico), Havremagasinet (Sweden), OCMA (USA), and Pratt Institute (USA), among other venues. Her work has been featured at the Triennial of Media Art (Beijing, 2014) and the California-Pacific Triennial (California, 2013), among others. Adriana has been a fellow resident at various institutions such as Akiyoshidai International Art Village (Japan, 2011), Nordik Artists’ Center (Norway, 2011), Grand Central Art Center (United States, 2013), and the Royal Hibernian Academy (Dublin, 2016). Her work has been incorporated to the public collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art of Monterrey (MARCO), the Bank of the Republic of Colombia’s Art Collection, and UCR ArtsBlock (California). She holds a BFA Honors degree from the Jorge Tadeo Lozano University of Bogota, and a Magna Cum Laude MFA degree in Philosophy from the Javeriana University of Bogota, and a PhD in Art and Design from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM, Mexico). Adriana has also lectured, participated in academic symposia, and contributed in journals such as Oxford’s OAR, Islario (Mexico), and Errata# (Colombia).
