Alicia Framis

Barcelona, 1967

Alicia Framis, a multidisciplinary artist who currently lives and works in Amsterdam, studied fine arts in Barcelona and Paris. In 2006 she moved to Shanghai as director of concept design of a new exhibition space belonging to the Museum of Contemporary Art Shanghai (MOCA), where she remained until 2010, when she returned to Amsterdam. A continuer of the performances of the ‘sixties, her work presents a pronounced social character and one of denouncement, with reflections on solitude, isolation and violence. Her interest in communicating emotions promotes the need to directly involve the public, reinforcing the search for a personal commitment on the part of spectators, made possible by the performance format. She also produces installations or interventions that question the urban space, the result of the analysis she makes of the relationship between architecture and individual in modern society.
