GABRIELA GALVAN

MEXICO CITY, MEXICO [1974]

Gabriela Galván was born in Mexico City. Spanning multiple disciplines—installation, public art, sculpture, video, drawing, and performance—Galvan’s work creates formal meditations on found and everyday objects. Used to activate the relationship between audience and site, objects in Galvan’s practice become a catalyst for personal and social transformations. 

Her work was exhibited internationally in venues such as Zacheta National Gallery (Poland), Museo Nacional de Arte Reina Sofía (Spain), Kuenstlerhaus Bethanien (Germany), and in her native Mexico at Museo Tamayo, Museo de Arte Moderno, Sala de Arte Publico Siqueiros, Museo de Arte Carrillo Gil and Museo de la Ciudad de Mexico (in collaboration with the Centre George Pompidou), among others. Recent public projects include Aquatic Random at Staten Island Ferry Terminal, NY. 

She was artist in residence at OMI International Arts Center (New York), the International Studio & Curatorial Program of New York and University of Fine Arts in Poznań (Poland). She has received grants from the Fundacion Jumex Arte Contemporaneo and the Fondo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes (FONCA) in the programa de Residencias Artísticas and the Programa Jóvenes Creadores in Mexico.

She lives and works in New York.​
