Naomi Rincón Gallardo (North Carolina, USA, 1979) is a multidisciplinary Mexican artist. Her artistic production addresses the “creation of counterworlds” or alternative worlds in the Global South, especially in Mexico, from a critical perspective of Eurocentrism, extractivism and the creed of development through an anti-racist and decolonial feminism. In her work, the artist, who lives in Mexico City, integrates her interest in music, theatrical games and humor. Rincón Gallardo is a member of the National System of Art Creators 2019-2022 of the National Fund for Culture and the Arts of Mexico. Her academic training includes a PhD in Practice at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts, a degree in Plastic Arts from the ENPEG “La Esmeralda” and a master’s program in Education: Culture, Language and Identity / Crossectoral-Community Arts of Goldsmiths of London.
