About the artist:
For nearly two decades, Guatemalan native and international performance artist Maria Adela Diaz has used her body and various media to explore the complex essence and sublimity of a woman’s nature. Diaz’s work raises objections to patriarchal values, political deception and discriminatory ideologies, employing video performance and installation Diaz’s seduces and provokes the observer within unexpected, everyday contexts. The artist has been featured in numerous solo and group exhibitions in venues around the world, including the Centre Pompidou in Paris, Ex Teresa Arte Actual in Mexico City, and Museo de Arte Contemporáneo in San Jose, Costa Rica, Italy, Croatia among others. Diaz currently resides in Los Angeles, where she works as an Art director.
