Eliza O. Barrios is a San Francisco-based visual artist whose work encompasses both individual and collaborative practices. In her solo work, Barrios explores the relationship between physical space, memory and the impermanence of lived experience, using digital media to orchestrate site-specific installations and projections. Her collaborative practice includes performance, video and photography engaging with concepts of gender and culture (with M.O.B. / Mail Order Brides), and public interventions addressing current social and political issues (with Paz de la Calzada). Her solo and collaborative work has shown domestically and internationally in museums, galleries, public spaces, and theaters, including the Museum of Contemporary Art (Oahu, Hawaii), Manila Biennale: Open City 2018 (Manila, Philippines), MCLA Gallery 51, (North Adams, Massachusetts), New Forms Festival (Vancouver, Canada), Tenderloin District (San Francisco), Soho (New York), and the International Turin Gay & Lesbian Film Festival (Turin, Italy). She has received an Honorary Fellowship from the Djerassi Resident Artists Program and has served as Juror for the Artists Communities Alliance’s Visions from New California Fellowship. Barrios holds a BA from San Francisco State University and a MFA from Mills College.
