Fellow ( 2023 ) Visual Arts USA
Whether facing the internal breakdown of the body or the environment in which it exists, Adriana Corral’s work seeks to understand the dynamics of a social structure where power, corruption, and class bias dominate. Her subjects are informed by human rights abuses, memory, and erased historical narratives. The work harkens back from her experiences growing up in her birthplace, El Paso, Texas, a city that borders Juárez, Chihuahua, Mexico. It is through the lens of these experiences that Adriana examines local, national, and international consequences of immigration, citizenship, economic trade, labor, and public health.
