Pia Camil (born 1980, Mexico City, Mexico, where she currently lives and works) draws inspiration from the urban landscapes of Latin America, engaging with the history of modernism to create paintings, sculptures, performances, and installations. Often using laborious fabrication processes in collaboration with local manufacturers, the artist decelerates the frenetic pace of mass commodification with handcrafted production, as shown in the intimate quality of her works.
Her work has been exhibited internationally, with recent solo museum exhibitions including Velo Revelo, Clark Art Institute, Williamstown, MA (2020); Fade into Black, Queens Museum, Queens, NY (2019); and Bara, Bara, Bara, Tramway, Glasgow, Scotland (2019), among many others. Camil has a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design, Providence, RI and an MFA from the Slade School of Fine Art, London. She lives and works in Mexico City.
