Born in Mexico City in 1980, Alejandra Laviada studied fine arts at the Rhode Island School of Design and photography at the New York School of Visual Arts before moving back to her hometown. Throughout her career, the artist has received numerous awards (the Photo España Descrubimientos Prize, the Biennial Photography Prize of Mexico City, and the FONCA Young Creators grant) and has exhibited her work internationally – from France to the United States and Guatemala. She has also done editorial work for the New York Times, Le Monde and Vogue Latin America. Alejandra Laviada is now developing an experimental work, exploring the relationships between different art forms – from painting to sculpture to photography. “I believe that one of the greatest strengths of this medium comes from its dialogue with other artistic disciplines,” she says.
