ALICIA VELÁZQUEZ

 

(*Madrid, 1969, lives in Zurich, Switzerland) works with the presence of bodies and embodiment through performances, paintings and installations.

She was an Adapt-r fellow (Art Design Architecture Practice Training research), Marie Curie European fund, and is currently a PhD (practice-based) candidate with university KU Leuven in Brussels.
