Paloma Navares is an interdisciplinary Spanish artist.


Paloma Navares was born in Burgos, Spain. She lives and works in Madrid and Alicante in Spain. She is the mother of Begoña Muñoz, film maker David Muñoz and visual artist Paloma Muñoz. She works with technology, space, light and other techniques to create her own personal plastic language; she also teaches art, i.e. the course Sculpture, Object, Installation at the Salzburg International Summer Academy from 1999 until 2002 (1) in Salzburg, Austria.

She has curated and managed international art events such as in 1986 the cycle of videos and installations Culture and New Technologies called Processes at the Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in Madrid. In 1984 and 1986 she directed the Video Festivals I and II in the Circulo de Bellas Artes in Madrid. In 1985 she managed the New Video & Technologies Contest in the Circulo de Bellas Artes in Madrid; in 1998 she organized the exhibition Images and Photography at the Huesca Image Festival and again in the 45th International Photography Salon of Oviedo. Her first audiovisual work was related to dance and performance. In 1985-1986 she created Seravan; A Song for a Fallen Tree and Origin and Moonlit Nights which were mainly exhibited in art centers and museums in Europe. In 1997-98 she did the scenery design for The House of Forgetfulness and Bodies of Shadow and Light with the company Lanonima Imperial. In 2004 she did a scenery design project for the opera Juana by Enric Palomar, first performed in 2005 at the Opera House in Halle. Since she began her art career in 1979 she has exhibited in more than one hundred venues around the world and her work has been seen in fairs and art biennials. Her work can be found in museums, institutions and private and public collections.

Her Work[edit]

Her search for subjects with a social background have led her to delve ever more deeply into the world of woman, her rituals, customs and traditions. Paloma's plastic language is based on the idea of hybridisation supported by the use of mixed media, combined disciplines and often, the use of industrial materials. Photography, video, sound and light all work together in her installation art, sculptures, objects and collages.
