(B. 1980, Guadalajara, MX)


Carlos Colín was born in Guadalajara, Mexico and grew up in Mexico City where he studied Visual Communication and Design from 2000-2004. In 2011 he earned his Masters of Fine Arts at the National School of Fine Art in Mexico City. Colín proceeded to complete a second Masters of Fine Arts at the University of British Columbia in 2013. His research investigates how contemporary art, artists, and art institutions are involved in current social movements and, by extension, how art contributes to social change and activism in Latin America. As a Latin American artist, Colín brings perspectives on the discourse of how art evolves inside societies, how it finds expressions, how it changes over time, and the implications this has for Latin America.
