Adriana Bustos (1965) is a multidisciplinary artist whose approach is investigative and concerned with revisiting history and social phenomena. She focuses on finding images that incarnate matters such as colonialism and its effects, the patriarchal gaze, censorship. By re-contextualizing them through juxtaposition and montage, she aims to question how historical knowledge is constructed and how it affects our perceptions today. Laborious drawing is at the center of her art practice, as a way to symbolically change the energetic load of the images through the work of the artist.

Bustos has exhibited her work extensively, most recently at the Sharjah Biennial 2019; Cosmopolis 2 at Centre Pompidou, 2019 and the 2020 Dhaka Art Summit. Her works are represented in many public collections including the Museum of Modern Art of Buenos Aires; Museum Reina Sofía, Madrid; Kadist Foundation, San Francisco; Museum of Contemporary Art of Medellín; Museum of Contemporary Art of Lisbon; Asiacity Foundation, Singapore; Sharjah Art Foundation, Emirates and Banco de la República de Colombia.
