Tania Candiani

Born in Mexico City in 1974, Tania Candiani currently lives and works in Mexico City and Tijuana. Her artistic practice is a reflection upon contemporary aesthetic patterns. She is interested in producing objects and images which represent the perception of contemporary urban spaces and their rituals. Beyond a specific observation on the body, her approach explores the emotional state and context of persons or social groups, and simultaneously proposes researching materials and techniques. Candiani’s work has been exhibited in museums in Mexico, the United States, Spain, Poland, Lithuania and Cairo. An upcoming solo show at Laboratorio de Arte Alameda and a mid-career retrospective at Museo Carrillo Gil – both in Mexico City – feature her work, in addition to a forthcoming publication including the past ten years of her artistic production. Her work is in the collection of Deustche Bank, the Mexican Museum in San Francisco, San Diego Museum of Art in San Diego, Alberta Du Pont Bonsal Foundation in La Jolla, Museum of Latin American Art in Los Angeles, Centro Cultural Tijuana, among others, as well as in several private collections.
