Gabriella Torres-Ferrer, b. 1987 Puerto Rico, lives and works between Barcelona and San Juan.
Gabriella Torres-Ferrer’s work untangles complex networks of cultural, historical, and political references. They challenge viewers to reconsider their own relationships with the works and the general culture that frames them. Their practice is broadly concerned with subverting hegemonic narratives about what it means to be a body in the world, futurability, and new digital epistemologies.
Torres-Ferrer’s work has been shown at the Whitney Museum of American Art (New York, New York), El Museo del Barrio (New York, New York), A.I.R. Gallery (Brooklyn, New York), Phillip Martin Gallery (Los Angeles, California), Curro Gallery (Guadalajara, Mexico), Gianni Manhattan Gallery (Vienna, Austria), and Embajada Gallery (San Juan, Puerto Rico), among others. Their work has also been shown at The Wrong New Digital Art Biennale online and offline (Brazil, Mexico, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic).
Torres-Ferrer has been the recipient of the 2012 Beta Local La Práctica fellowship in San Juan Puerto Rico, the 2020 Guest Artist Programme prize at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland, and the 2020 Artist in Residence fellowship at the Akademie Schloss Solitude in Stuttgart, Germany.
Represented by Embajada Gallery in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
