camila lobos diaz

Camila Lobos Díaz lives and works between London (UK) and Santiago (CL). She obtained her BFA degree from the Catholic University of Chile (2013) and an MFA Sculpture in Slade School of Fine Art, University College London (2019). Her work, mainly three-dimensional, is about making the socio-political-cultural context visible. It explores the relationship between power and visibility. Her current research is developed in the intersection between art and human geography extrapolating her research around periphery, marginality and invisibility to global processes linked to migration, power centres and costs of progress in less developed countries. Camila is a winner of the Chilean National Cultural Council Grant: FONDART (2020) and (2018); Santiago Municipality Visual Art Awards 2017 (Chile); Slade Bursary 2017 (UK); “Art and technology” Award, Telefónica Foundation 2013 (Chile); LENOVO Art Prize, 2012 (Chile). In 2017 she received the Yitzhak Danziger Scholarship to undertake the MFA degree at Slade School of Art in London. She has been nominated for different awards such as Red Mansion Art Prize 2018 (UK - China), UCL Museum/ Slade Collaboration 2018 (UK).


Camila has been recently appointed as the new Artist in Residency at Carpintarias Sao Lazaro Lisbon (2020, Portugal) and awarded the Gulbenkian Grant by Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation. In 2020 she was granted a Residency programme at Berlin Sessions, (2020, Germany). She has been commissioned by Tate Modern Museum to develop a special edition of Christmas cards (2019, UK). In 2017 she was commissioned by the Chilean Ministry of Culture and Arts to create the Public Art Project “El lugar de la visibilidad” (Chile), and in 2016 was awarded a grant to develop an Artist in Residence programme by the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna (Austria).
