Virtual Exhibition


Laura Medina // Laura Camila Medina is an interdisciplinary artist born in Bogota, Colombia. She bases her practice around memory and identity as a response to personal, cultural, and historical research. Her work utilizes a unique combination of traditional mediums within digitally constructed spaces to create immersive visual analogies of cultural hybridity.


Medina is inspired by her memories of home, her mother’s arepas, and her father’s soundtracks. Her work has shown at the Center for Contemporary Art & Culture, PLANETA New York, Wieden + Kennedy, and with the Nat Turner Project.


In addition to the New Media Fellowship at Open Signal she was awarded the Artist in Residence at the Living School of Art, and most recently the IPRC Artists & Writers in Residence Program. She earned her BFA at PNCA and is currently based in Portland, OR.
