Pia Camil

Through her work Pia Camil has shown a proclivity to failure or the decaying associated to the mexican urban landscape, aspects of modernist culture, and traces of art history. Her practice has explored the urban ruin, including paintings and photographs of halted projects along Mexico’s highways (highway follies); abandoned billboards that become theatre-like curtains therefore theatricalizing failed capitalist strategies (espectaculares), or the problems and contradictions that arise when engaging with iconic art works (No A trio A or Cuadrado Negro). In 2009, Camil formed a performance-based band with Esteban and Anajosé Aldrete. Creating outfits and scenery for El Resplandor’s site specific performances, the artist evokes a ritualistic cathartic atmosphere for the band’s loud, trance-induced music.


Camil has had solo exhibitions at CAC in Cincinnati and Blum and Poe in Los Angeles. Her work has also been included in group exhibitions at Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art, Saatchi Gallery, and Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y León, among other institutions.
