For Aurora Molina (Havana, 1984), embroidery is a form of drawing with which to recount her realities. Her two and three dimensional pieces, made with thread and fabric, tell us about the problems of aging in contemporary society; our current migration policies; or the political elections. Through connections and collaborations with numerous communities of embroiders in the World, she has also been able to pay homage and shine light onto this ancient women’s tradition, within a contemporary art context.
Molina received her AA in Visual Arts from Miami Dade College (2004); a BFA from Florida International University (2007); and an MA in Contemporary Art at the Universidad Europea de Madrid, Spain (2009). She has vastly exhibited internationally, in spaces that include: Museo Textil, Oaxaca, Mexico; Museo Imagina, Puebla, Mexico; The Lowe Art Museum and the Coral Gables Museum, Coral Gables, FL; The Bakehouse Art Complex, and FountainHead Project, Miami, FL; Sewon Art Space, Jogyakarta, Indonesia; and Espacio Trapezio, Madrid, Spain; etc.
