Mexico City-based artist Adriana Lara de-emphasizes object making in favor of a conceptual reimagining of artistic production and the exhibition space. She playfully turns her attention to artistic models in order to set up problems or situations for the viewer to reflect upon. Lara is also co-founder of Perros Negros, which she describes as “a production office of artistic projects in small, medium, and big scale, carried out from a research of possibilities and collaborations between different agents not necessarily related to each other.”
Lara is a self-taught artist. She has had solo exhibitions at Gaga Arte Contemporaneo, Mexico City (2008); Galería Comercial, San Juan, Puerto Rico (2007); and Air de Paris, Paris, France (2007). Her work has been included in many group exhibitions, including San Juan Poly/Graphic Triennial, Instituto de Cultura Puertorriqueña, San Juan, Puerto Rico (2009); Galerie Isabella Bortolozzi, Berlin, Germany (2009); The Generational: Younger than Jesus, New Museum, New York, New York (2009); and LA MAMAIN ET LA PUTAIN, Air de Paris, Paris, France (2006).
