guadalupe aldrete

Guadalupe Aldrete is a multidisciplinary artist based in Vienna. She attended a long training in the painting academy since her childhood. Later, parallel to studies in art conservation, she continued her own art practice which was certainly enriched by the knowledge in antique artist’s methods, classical iconography and Mexican and Roman archaeology.

Since 2009, parallel to her training as a visual artist she participated in several performance and body awareness workshops with internationally recognized artists. Most recently with Daria Halprin and Guillermo Gómez Peña. In 2018 she completed a master in "Art & Science" at the University of Applied Arts Vienna.

Her work has been presented internationally in several art festivals and exhibitions in the framework of individual and collaborative projects. These include residencies in the Austrian Frauenmuseum Hittisau (2021) and the Chinese Lushan Art Museum (Sichuan, 2018), as well as commissioned works like for the inauguration of the Croatian Museum for Modern and Contemporary Art in Rijeka MMSU (2018) and a performance for PCP at the Science Gallery London (2023). Her solo exhibitions "Diluidos" (Michaela Stock Gallery; Vienna, 2018), "Antes de la Oxitocina" (Mexican Cultural Institute of the Mexican Embassy in Vienna, 2020) and "Un Pueblo" (eindorf Kunstraum; Vienna, 2023) included performances and performative - created artworks (painting, video, installation and photography).

She is member of the Künstelerhaus Association since 2023.
