Nancy Urosa’s practice is multidisciplinary: visual arts, music, photography, design, theater, film. She studied Cinematography at the University Central de Venezuela. She obtained her Master’s degree in Visual Arts culminating in her thesis Te veo debajo de la piel in 2005, and in 2014 she completed her PhD in Art and Culture for Latin America and the Caribbean. With Peggy González, Urosa produced El Papagayo (35mm) which was shown in festivals in Lleida, Elche, Girona, São Paulo, Drama, Athens, and Clermont-Ferrand. Along with Luciano Zubillaga, she was the Associate Producer for Music for a Missing Film (London, 2010).
With her daughters Rosangela and Daniela Muñoz, Urosa started the collective MURO. Her individual and group exhibitions include: El Intercambio Imposible (2008); A Dos Bolívares La Pieza (2009); Mercado de Coche (Museo Alejandro Otero/Galeria L’Antena , 2011); La inestabilidad necesaria (UCV); and Solo Estoy Siendo (Oficina #1).
Urosa collaborated with Erika Ordosgoitti for INSPIRAMIRÁBILIS- Cultura Para La Paz, SURCOS (Centro Cultural Chacao, 2012) and Metáfora del agujero (UCV/UPEL/IPC, 2012–2014).
