Dora García (Valladolid, 1965) is an internationally renowned artist whose work investigates the parameters and conventions governing the presentation of art, the question of time—real and fictional—and the limits between representation and reality.
Her work, conceptual in nature, uses fiction as an instrument to present reality as something multiple and questionable. She uses a variety of creative supports—texts, photographs, performances and site-specific installations—to generate contexts that alter the traditional communication scheme of emitter-message-receptor, thereby modifying the traditional relation between artist, work and public.
In 2011 she was the Spanish representative at the Venice Biennale and, in 2012, took part in dOCUMENTA (13). Dora García has had solo shows at the CGAC (Santiago de Compostela, 2009), the Galleria Civica di Trento (2010), Power Plant (Toronto, 2011), Kunsthaus Bregenz (2013) and the Universidad Torcuato di Tella (Buenos Aires, 2014).
