Valentina Alvarado Matos


Through a multidisciplinary artistic practice, Valentina Alvarado Matos (Maracaibo, 1986) explores the hybridization of the various plastic languages that she uses -collage, ceramics, photography and analog film- to elaborate discourses linked to memory and identity displayed in unfinished geographies. Her work establishes a dialogue where the poetic and the political are an important part of her artistic proposal. Graduated in Graphic Design from the University of Zulia, where she was a professor at the Faculty of Experimental Arts, she moved to Barcelona in 2014 where she holds a Master in Contemporary Artistic Creation at the University of Barcelona. She has participated in various collective exhibitions between Maracaibo, Caracas, Barcelona, Berlin, Miami, and London. Historial de navegación was her first solo show (Backroom Caracas, 2014). In 2016 she participated in the exhibition El pueblo - Searching for Contemporary Latin America at the Oberhausen Festival (Germany). Her film pieces have been presented at festivals such as S (8) Cinema Mostra Periférico, L'Alternativa, Antimatter Film Festival, International Film Festival Rotterdam, Festival Punto de Vista, among others. In 2017 she obtained the Guasch Coranty Foundation scholarship. She attended to Middle Cycle of Ceramic Decoration at the Scola D´Art L´Industrial.In early 2020 she travels to Canada as part of a film residence at Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto in collaboration with the S (8) festival and ACE Cultural She is currently pursuing her Ph.D. in Advanced Studies Artistic Productions at the University of Barcelona.
