Julia Carrillo (Mexico, 1987)

Julia Carrillo is a multidisciplinary artist with extensive scientific training. Her projects arise from questions about our perception of the world and the tools we have built to observe, understand, investigate and represent it. Through the analysis and construction of artifacts that extend our capabilities, Carrillo has created a body of work that addresses sculpture, installation, architecture, photography and performance.

She studied Mathematics at the National Autonomous University of Mexico, a Master's Degree in Visual Arts at the Academia de San Carlos and studied at the New York School of Visual Arts (SVA). She is a member of the National System of Art Creators (SNCA-FONCA).

She is currently carrying out projects in collaboration with the Center for Complexity Sciences, Institute of Mathematics and Institute of Astronomy of UNAM.

She has participated in several artistic residencies including: Art Omi in New York; MMCA International Artist Fellowship Program of the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art of Korea; A.C.
