About Camilo Villa

Camilo is a Colombian artist who utilizes his creative practice as a visibility platform. He is committed to unveil oppressive systems to recreate alternative communities. His love for craft and performance intersect in order to communicate symbolic narratives that encourage conversation about the role of art within social justice. He is currently working on the Baila Conmigo Project, which invites queer Latinx people to occupy iconic public spaces of cities to the rhythm of latin beats. Besides livening the daily routine of citizens, this project aims to create community through dance, a non verbal bodily language that brings people together. The dance is documented though video and photographs that are then translated into vibrant posters, stencils, and collages.
