NAOMI RINCÓN- GALLARDO SHIMADA (North Carolina, USA. 1979). Lives and works in Mexico City. BA in Visual Arts, “La Esmeralda”, Mexico City. MA in Education: Culture, Language and Identity/Cross-sectoral and Community Arts, Goldsmiths University of London. PhD in Practice Candidate at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. Understanding research as an artful and transdisciplinary fabrication, her latest work addresses initiatives related to the creation of counter-worlds in the recent past in Mexico. She uses irony, masquerade lenses and queer methodologies to create a place between radical utopian experiences, fantasy and crises of beliefs. Rincón Gallardo integrates her interest in music, literature, theater games, feminisms and critical pedagogy into her work. Alongside her artistic work, she has been involved in institutional and non-institutional education settings and community projects, both teaching and coordinating.
