Adriana Corral’s installations, performances, and sculptures embody universal themes of loss, human rights violations, memory, and erased historical narratives.  Her practice is rigorous and researched based, often driving her to work within the archives. Experts ranging from historians, librarians, anthropologists, writers, journalists, gender scholars, human rights attorneys, and the victims’ families provide Corral with vital data that aids in the conception of her works.  Corral received her Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Texas at Austin and completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the University of Texas at El Paso. She was invited to attend the 106th session of the Working Group on Enforced and Involuntary disappearances at the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland (2015) and was selected for the Joan Mitchell Foundation Emerging Artist Grant (2016). Corral attended the McDowell Residency (2014), Künstlerhaus Bethanien Residency in Berlin, Germany (2016), the International Artist in Residence at Artpace (2016), was an Artist Fellow at Black Cube, a Nomadic Art Museum (2017), an Artist Research Fellow at Archives of American Art and History at the Smithsonian Institution (2018), and an Artist in Residence at the Joan Mitchell Center (2018). Corral's work is currently on view at MASS MoCA (2019-2020).
