Laura Acosta



Laura Acosta is a Colombian-Canadian transdisciplinary artist that works with textiles, performance, and audio-visual installations to create spaces of otherness that question the relationship between body and space. Through surreal scenographies she explores themes of identity, dislocation and performativity. Collaboration is at the core of Laura’s practice working with other artists across disciplines to achieve new aesthetic languages. She has exhibited her solo and collective work throughout Canada and was part of the long list of nominees for the Sobey art award in 2023. Laura holds a diploma in Fine Arts from Fanshawe College, an interdisciplinary BFA with a special focus on textiles and sculpture from and NSCAD University, as well as an MFA in Fibres and Material studies from Concordia University, where she is currently the Head of Wardrobe in the Theatre Department.
