Julia Carrillo Mexican, b. 1987

Her artistic practice examines the conditions of perception within physical spaces and fosters immersive situations that invite the intimacy of discovery. Her art is based on the transformation of space through natural phenomena such as the movements of light, the travel of sound, and the dynamics of fluid forces. She's developed projects that lead her to build abstract and metaphorical scenarios marked by interior-exterior, natural-built, reality-representation dualities. In these projects, she explores how the passage of time, the random, the rhythms of nature, and individual experiences establish the guidelines for creating interior landscapes.
 A mathematician from the National Autonomous University of Mexico, she completed a master's degree in Visual Arts at the San Carlos Academy and at the School of Visual Arts in New York.
 She has participated in various artistic residencies such as the MMCA Residency International Artist Fellowship Program of the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (MMCA / Korea), Flux Factory (New York), and The Hollows (New York).
 She has obtained support and scholarships for projects such as the Artistic Improvement Residency Program of the National Fund for Culture and the Arts (FONCA, 2014), Program of Support for Production and Research in Art and Media of the National Center for the Arts (CENART, 2015), Young Creators of the National Fund for Culture and the Arts (FONCA, 2016-2017), Art Science and Technologies (ACT-FONCA 2018) and the OMI residence in Ghent New York.
 Her works are in the collections of the Monterrey Museum of Contemporary Art (MARCO) and the Universum Science Museum, UNAM in Mexico.
 Her participation in the upcoming ArtBo 2022  is preceded by her critically acclaimed LUZ INSTANTE exhibition at the ARTE ABIERTO cultural platform in Mexico City, her solo exhibit DIAFANA at the Elvira Moreno Gallery in Bogota,  and  her artist-in-residence at the renowned ART OMI foundation in Ghent in New York.
