Alejandra González Soca

Alejandra González Soca was born in Maldonado, Uruguay, where she lives. A multidisciplinary artist, Soca’s work is based on the intersection and interweaving of participatory artistic practices, collective curatorships and the constant search for ways to build knowledge in contemporary art. She has exhibited at: National Museum of Visual Arts (MNAV); Espacio de Arte Contemporáneo (EAC) in Uruguay; Banco do Brasil Cultural Center – Brasilia, San Pablo; Cabildo Cultural Center – Asunción; Casa del Risco Museum – Mexico and the Qorikancha Museum – Cusco, among others. She participated in the 4th BIENALSUR, the 5th Montevideo Biennial and 2nd Asunción International Biennial. Her work has been recognized through competitive funds, scholarships, and artistic residencies. While at the Dora Maar House, González Soca will be working on a collaborative project entitled, “MOVING From South to South” with Safaa Erruas an artist based in Tétouan, Morocco and Christine Ferrer, a French artist based in Ménerbes. This collaborative project seeks to explore approaches that connect them both conceptually and materially, based on the idea of geographical displacement.
