Laureana Toledo (born 1970) is a Mexican artist.[1][2]

Toledo was born in Ixtepec, Oaxaca, Mexico in 1970,[3] and lives and works in Mexico City. She began as a photographer, and later incorporated drawing, painting, video, sound and sculpture into her work.[4] From January to March 2009, she was an artist in residence at Gasworks, a contemporary art organisation in South London, UK.[4] She is co-founder of SOMA, an art space in Mexico City which hosts international artists, curators, critics, and art historians in their Summer programs.[5]

According to a SOMA Summer artist-in-residence description,

Laureana is inspired by the imperceptible or transient moments of the everyday, speculating on how such phenomena can gain new forms of visual presentation. Her work often involves systematic and repetitive interventions into different media (texts, books, photographs, painitngs, etc.) to re-code their existing narratives.[5]

Toledo is the daughter of Francisco Toledo.
