Gabriella Torres-Ferrer is a multimedia artist and researcher. She holds a BA in architecture from the Polytechnic University of Puerto Rico. Gabriella’s work challenges viewers to untangle complex networks of literary, artistic, and historical references, while simultaneously inviting them to reconsider their own relationships with such works and the general culture that frames them. It consists predominantly in subverting hegemonic narratives in order to raise questions about possible futures, often addressing new realities, such as the often taken-for-granted digital reality in which we live, and the power structures and means of production and exchange in this era of the internet and cybernetics.

Her work has been featured nationally and internationally, appearing at the Occupy Museums 2017 showing at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York/USA, El Museo del Barrio, New York and online at The Wrong – New Digital Art Biennale, among others. In 2019, she participated in the Scaleability Project at A.I.R. cooperative feminist art collective, New York, This Synthetic Moment (The Replicant) at Phillip Martin gallery, Los Angeles/USA; XYXX010101000 at Curro gallery, Zapopan/Mexico and Stage of Maneuvers at Gianni Manhattan, Vienna/Austria. In 2012, she was a fellow of the Beta-Local program in San Juan/Puerto Rico, and she is the holder of a guest artist award from CERN, Geneva/Switzerland.
