Alma García Gil

(Culiacan, Sinaloa 1990)

Is a posdisciplinary artist graduated from the Visual Arts Degree at the University of Guadalajara.

 

She mainly works with performance, installation and photography.

 

Garcia Gil has experimented with durational and relational processes; as well as working with recurring materials to generate her own system of meaning. Her work seeks to confront the viewer with multiple representations of the concepts of femininity and resistance and with episodes of her life. Her work is a critique of the gender construct and the violence it generate; but also, a reflection on the vulnerability and the subconscious.

She lives and works in Mexico City since

2015.

Credit of the Jóvenes Creadores 2019-2020 grant, granted by the National Fund for Culture and the Arts (Fondo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes).

COLLABORATIVE PROJECTS

Laboratorio de arte San Juan de Dios.

Since its beginnings in 2013, in Guadalajara, Mexico. For San Juan de Dios Art Laboratory respect for otherness has been the most important within a framework of children's rights, a perspective of gender and dissent queer. It has worked from the expanded pedagogies, a laboratory of experimentation of contemporary art aimed at children who live and work in the largest roofed market in Latin America, the "San Juan de Dios" Market.

In 2018, the editorial version of the project catalog was published.
