Liliana Angulo Cortés (b. Bogotá, Colombia 1974) is a visual artist; she graduated from the National University in Bogotá, Colombia with a specialization in sculpture. She has developed her practice using a variety of media, including sculpture, photography, video, installation, sound, and performance. In her work, she explores the body through issues of racial identity and politics, gender, language, power relations, and Afro-Colombian culture, among other themes. Angulo’s work refutes the limitations of identity in national narratives and of power relations within these discourses. Her work challenges imposed hierarchies, disputing the ideas of a disembodied universality. She believes in the artist as a public intellectual and her practice involves different roles—researcher, creator, educator, distributor, administrator, and curator. In addition to national exhibitions in Colombia, she has participated in international exhibitions in Europe, North and South America and Asia.
