Eliza Barrios

Eliza O. Barrios is a multidisciplinary artist. Her work ranges from installation and performative art to new media art, all of which draws from her background as a queer American Filipina. Barrios is inspired by her fervent curiosity of how ephemeral space is perceived in relation to systems of belief. Barrios’ work has been exhibited at museums, film festivals, and new media festivals internationally and domestically, including the Optica Festival (Gijón, Spain); New Forms Festival (Vancouver, Canada); International Turin Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, Museum of Contemporary Art (Oahu, Hawaii); and Mag:Net: Gallery (Manila, Philippines). Barrios holds a BA from San Francisco State University and an MFA from Mills College. She has received an Honorary Fellowship from the Djerassi Resident Artists Program and is also a member of Mail Order Brides/M.O.B. (Reanne Estrada and Jenifer Wofford). They have been scheming, entertaining, and creating together for more than 10 years. The group’s work includes video, performance, and public art. Mail Order Brides/M.O.B. has shown in various museums, galleries, and film festivals including the de Young Museum (San Francisco), the Mix Festival (New York City), Frameline (San Francisco), and the Luggage Store Gallery (San Francisco).
