Julieta Aranda (Mexico/USA, 1975) earned a BFA in filmmaking from the School of Visual Arts (2001) and an MFA from Columbia University (2006), both in New York. She is interested in examining social interactions and the role that the circulation of objects plays in the cycles of production and consumption. Aranda’s work is intensely site-specific, using installation, video, print media and temporary projects. Her work has been featured at exhibitions at the Guggenheim Museum, New York (2009); Venice Biennale (2011); Art Basel (2011 and 2012); Neuer Berliner Kunstverein, Berlin (2012); Documenta, Kassel, Germany (2012); Stella Art Foundation, Moscow (2012); Museo d’Arte Contemporanea di Roma - MACRO (2012); and Museo d’Arte Contemporanea di Villa Croce, Genoa (2013). Since 2003, Aranda is both a contributor and editor of e-flux journal, a publishing platform and cultural enterprise, producing several projects that explore unusual models for the circulation and distribution of art. She lives and works in New York and Berlin.
