Diana Larrea


DIANA LARREA (Madrid, 1972) is a Spanish visual artist who, throughout a long professional career, has used in her works different languages ​​and disciplines such as installation, video, photography or drawing. Her best-known works are the specific interventions carried out in public spaces. Within the diversity and versatility that her artistic proposals display, she has always maintained a personal commitment to certain symbolic conflicts, both contemporary and historical past. The empathic dialogue that she establishes with the social tensions of our civilization has been a common denominator in her whole work.

She has participated in exhibitions at Museu Nacional do Conjunto Cultural da Republica in Brasilia (Brazil), at the National Centre of Contemporary Art in Moscow (Russia), the Kunsthall Charlottenborg in Copenhagen (Denmark), at Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona and at EACC Espai d’Art Contemporani in Castelló.
