Carmen Argote Biography

Carmen Argote's practice is characterised by site-informed actions of forage, salvage, and spatial exploration, refracted through her own body.

Working with materials as diverse as residential carpeting, muslin, coffeemakers, pine needles, and, recently, fiberglass, Argote contends with class and ideas of home, place, and the built environment. Her work is also informed by process, and she frequently leaves vestiges of her actions visible. Play transpires without the expectation of an outcome; it is not a matter of success or failure. Argote lets the work take form, finding itself in her hands; and the artist finds herself.

Argote is born in Guadalajara, Mexico and lives and works in Los Angeles. She received her MFA in 2007 from the University of California, Los Angeles, where she also received her BFA in 2004.

Recent solo exhibitions have been held at Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego (2022); Primary, Nottingham, UK (2021); Clockshop, Los Angeles (2020); Commonwealth and Council, Los Angeles (2020, 2018); New Museum, New York (2019); and PAOS, Guadalajara (2019).
