Luíza Bastos Lages is a transdisciplinary artist and educator from Itabirito, Brazil.
Luíza works on visual narratives that combine daily life, the imminence of ruination, and memory. Her works are often an articulation of writing, sculptural objects, and the moving image, which in dialogue result in installations with varying formats. Through this practice, the artist attempts to distill the history of capitalism as founded upon the structures of coloniality. The lens through which Luíza approaches such structures is the political relations among the Americas as well as the experiences of life under advanced capitalism.
Luíza was a MIT Transmedia Story Telling resident and fellow (2020), she holds a Master of Science in Art, Culture, and Technology from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (2020), and a professional degree in Architecture and Urban Planning from Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (2013).
