> DESCRIPTION

Through archival research Carla Herrera-Prats' work comments on the cultural and economic transactions that flow, often invisibly, in the context of a transnational world. Her projects juxtapose photography and material from different sources questioning the documentary value of both images and text. Herrera-Prats was co-director of the gallery Acceso A in Mexico City. She has shown her individual work in venues such as Sala de Arte Publico Siqueiros, Centro de la Imagen, Museo Dolores Olmedo, Museo Universitario de Arte Contemporáneo in Mexico City; Darb, Egypt; Centre Vu, Canada; Artists Space, Art in General and the Contemporary Museum of Baltimore, United States.

Herrera-Prats is co-founder of Camel Collective, a group of artists, writers and film makers with whom she has worked since 2005. Herrera-Prats has recently taught at the Cooper Union, the California Institute of the Arts, the Department of Visual and Environmental Studies at Harvard University and currently teaches at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. She also directs the international six weeks summer program scheduled yearly in Mexico City, SOMA Summer. Herrera-Prats received her BFA at "La Esmeralda," in Mexico City, and her MFA in Photography at CalArts, Los Angeles. She has been a participant at the Whitney Independent Study Program in New York.
