About the Artist
Adriana Corral’s installations, performances and sculptures embody universal themes of loss, human rights violations, concealment and memory. With a rigorous and solicitous researched-based practice and process, anthropologists, writers, journalists, gender scholars, human rights attorneys and the victim’s families provide Corral with the key data and infrastructure for the formation of her works.
Corral received her Masters of Fine Arts from The University of Texas at Austin and completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts at The University of Texas at El Paso. Corral was invited to attend the 106th session of the Working Group on Enforced and Involuntary disappearances at the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland, selected for the Joan Mitchell Foundation Emerging Artist Grant, named Artists to Watch 18 exceptional new talents by Modern Painters and recently attended the International Artist-in-Residence at Artpace, Künstlerhaus Bethanien Residency in Berlin, Germany. She is a current fellow at Black Cube, a Nomadic Art Museum based in Denver, Colorado.
