Mexico, 1991

Paloma Contreras Lomas

She began her artistic education in Visual Arts at Escuela Nacional de Pintura, Escultura y Grabado, “La Esmeralda” (2011-2015). Shortly after, she joined the multidisciplinary group Biquini Wax EPS (2016) and in the same year she started the educational program at SOMA (2016-2018). Contreras Lomas’s work extends to different media such as video, writing, drawing, and performance, as well as collective production parallel to her personal research. Her production addresses different issues such as de-class in art, literary fiction as a tool, the landscape as a wardrobe, as well as Latin American science fiction and middle-class terror. Her work has been shown in Palais de Tokyo; FRAC Centre Orléans; Museo de Arte Moderno (MAM); Galería de Arte Contemporáneo Antonio López Sáenz, among others. She has been the recipient of scholarships such as Jóvenes Creadores, FONCA (2018-2019), Next Generation Grantee (as Biquini Wax EPS) and the Cisneros Fontanals CIFO award in the Emerging Artist category (2020). Currently and collectively, she plans the creation of La Nación Espiritual, very closely to the Popocatépetl volcano. She lives and works in Mexico City.
