Minerva Cuevas

Minerva Cuevas (1975, Mexico City). It is impossible to separate Minerva Cuevas’ work as an artist from her social activism. Adapting to a variety of environments, she moves easily between various media: condemning the environmental and social consequences of global capitalism and advocating for equality through local action and the redistribution of monetary flow. Cuevas studied a B.A in Visual Arts at Escuela Nacional de Artes Plásticas, UNAM. In 2004, she attended the Artist Residency Edith-Ruß-Haus für Medienkunst Stipend; Oldenburg, after having made in 2003 the Deutscher Akademischer Austausch Dienst DAAD, Artist Residency, Berlin; and The Banff Centre for the Arts, Artist Residency, Canada. Her most important solo exhibitions include: Minerva Cuevas, Museo de la Ciudad de México; Landings, Cornerhouse, Gallery 1, Manchester; SCOOP, Whitechapel Gallery, London; Minerva Cuevas, Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven; Phenomena, Kunsthalle Basel; On Society, MC Kunst, Los Angeles; Egalité 2007, Le Grand Café–Centre d’art contemporain, Saint Nazaire; among many others. Her work has been included in group exhibitions at institutions such as the Museo Jumex, Mexico City; Kunsthaus Bregenz; Musée d’art moderne de la Ville de Paris; Museo Universitario de Arte Contemporáneo, Mexico City; KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin; Centre Pompidou, Paris; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, among others. Minerva Cuevas currently lives and works in Mexico City.
