Ana García Jácome

Master of Arts in Visual and Critical Studies

Ana García Jácome is a Mexican visual artist whose work addresses the social construction of disability. She is interested in how disability is conventionally represented, daily experienced and the differences between both. Her research focuses on the relationship between history and ways of seeing and naming and looks for ways to rearticulate and counteract those narratives. Her work is a collage of mediums and materials where writing entangles with the visual, and documents are pulled from the everyday as well as from institutional archives, put together in videos and publications that sometimes coexist in space as installations. She holds a BFA from the School of Arts and Design of the National Autonomous University of Mexico (FAD, UNAM) and finished her MA in Visual and Critical Studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with the support of the scholarship program of Fundación Jumex Arte Contemporáneo.
