Camila Salcedo was born in Caracas, Venezuela and immigrated to Toronto, Canada in 2007. She is an interdisciplinary artist with a primary focus in textiles, performance, video and curation with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Interdisciplinary from NSCAD University. Camila is interested in the themes of nationalism, borderlands and mapping. As a result, she often explores ideas around migration, displacement, identity and politics through her work.
In the last year she completed six artist-in-residence programs through Arquetopia and The Lab Program in Mexico, Proyecto ACE and Residencia Corazón in Argentina, Arquetopia in Peru and Eyelevel Artist-Run Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
Camila was accepted as an Artist-in-Residence (Textiles) at Harbourfront Centre in 2019.
