Alejandra Glez (b. 1996) is a self-taught Cuban visual artist based in Madrid. Her work has focused on the deconstruction of stereotypes and stigmas associated with the human body. Through photography, video art, digital art, and performance, Alejandra works with topics associated with Afro-Caribbean religions, collective memory, and the spirituality that emanates from the relationship between human beings and the sea.
Last March, she exhibited at ARCOmadrid 2022. As the winner of the IV Fundación ENAIRE Young Photography Award, she also exhibited her work at the opening of the PHotoESPAÑA 2021 Festival together with JustMad 2021. She recently obtained the PHotoESPAÑA Master Scholarship in Photography, Theories and Artistic Projects. In addition, Alejandra is the first Cuban artist to have a drop completely dedicated to promote her work within the NFTs market. In 2020 she was a finalist in the XIV edition of the Arte Laguna Prize in the video art category, which allowed her to exhibit her award-winning work at the Arsenale venue of the Venice Biennale.
