Pilar Albarracín
1968, Aracena, Espanha

Pilar Albarracín nwas born in Aracena (Huelva), Spain. He obtained a B.F.A. from the University of Seville in 1993. Her work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at Galería Juana de Aizpuru in Madrid and Seville; Sala Montcada de la Fundació La Caixa, Barcelona; Centro Atlántico de Arte Moderno, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria; Reales Atarazanas de Sevilla, Spain; Filomena Soares, Lisbon. She has been included in group exhibitions in venues such as the Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art, Thessaloníki, Greece; P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, New York; Museo de Arte Contemporáneo Español, Valladolid, Spain; Centre National d'Art et du Paysage de Vassivière en Limousin, France; İstanbul Modern Sanat Müzesi; Magasin 3 Stockholm Konsthall. Albarracín also participated in the First International Biennale of Contemporary Art in Seville in 2004, and in the Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art and the Venice Biennale in 2005. He currently lives and works in Madrid. Albarracin was featured in the exhibition Global Feminisms, curated by Maura Reilly and Linda Nochlin.

After graduating in 1993 from the School of Fine Arts in Seville, Pilar Albarracín quickly became a major artist, first on the Spanish contemporary art scene and then on the international stage through her militant work, where pride was given to her criticism of the inequalities between women and men in post-Franco Spanish society. She produced installations, photographs, and videos, as well as, and above all, performances, in which she embodied different types of women (prostitute, dancer, singer, gypsy, housewife, and emigrant), in which she deconstructed clichés with sarcasm and irony, especially the image of the Andalusian woman, glorified during Franco's regime, whom she parodied using components of national identity: religion, folklore, dance, bullfighting, flamenco, and gastronomy.
