Diana Rangel was born in Caracas in 1987, where she lives and works as an artist and independent researcher. Her artistic practice focuses on the relationship between the visual arts and educational processes through the image. Her projects seek for participation to become a main tool for a dialectic process of creation. Thus, her work exists in a constant relationship with an other, an exchange, a swing of images and words in dialogue and with shared subjective constructions.
She studied photography at the International Center of Photography in New York and received a Master's degree in Expressive Arts, Participation and Social Change from The European Graduate School (Switzerland) after finishing her studies in clinical psychology at the Central University of Venezuela. She is currently the founder of the NGO Círculos de Cultura and co-founder of nodoCCS.
Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally. In Venezuela she has participated in the Premio Eugenio Mendoza 12más1 (2015) with Persiguiendo al eco de Karl Marx and the XXII Iberoamerican Art Fair 2013 Salón Mercantil Guardar Como with There where you are not. Her work (Re) tornos has been exhibited in Gallery Alfinete in Brazil, and the book People Blinking at the same time was a participant in the ICP Triennial 2013 in Arles Rencontres both the same year and in 2015 in Livre Possible Brazil.
She has done freelance editing and curating in New York with the exhibition CLAP at 10x10 Photobooks and has participated in residencies in Minnesota with The Little Brown Mushroom, the publishing house Alec Soth 2013, TAKT Berlin 2014, and ZKU Berlin 2016.
